Excellent. Very different than the 00. Full bodied. Still carries a bit of that woody construct but in a subtle way vs the 00 which was light in body with strong hints of green pepper and cedar.

Dark ruby with bouquet of cassis, graphite, dark berries, a little Bret. Very round tannins, lush mouth feel with cassis, earth, berries, and some licorice. Hot year made this rally suave compared to other cooler yrs of Sociando. Not stewed at all and drinking beautifully now. Probably very nice over next ten yrs

Old school classic claret. This is as always a great value option. Loads of dark fruit, slightly edgy tannins, tobacco and smoke. Still very tannic, old school style.

Happy Valentines Day to us! A great Bordeaux contrasted with a Will Harlem Cab! Great contrast of old world and new.

Beautiful Bordeaux aging nicely. The tannins are dusty. The mouthfeel is silky smooth. The palate is cassis, blackberries, anise, and tobacco. Lovely.

Pepper, blackberries, horsey in a good way. So luscious and perfect.
