Sticking with St. Emilion for the night. This wine is quite different from the last. Deep dark stewed blue fruits and figs, pencil lead, quite extracted, nose and palate in harmony transmitting similar notes. Even the darker color forshadows the darkness to follow. This wine is oppulent, but without the big fruit forward New World bravado. It stays true to Bordeaux but pushes the limits. Medium plus alcohol and body, slightly drying tannins, long finish. I regret that I have finished my steak because this wine craves a proper food pairing. Excellent and it will only get better.

Tons of green bell pepper on the nose. Very pretty with plenty of power. A long finish. Great wine. I'd love this with a NY Strip steak.

Few guessed this a Bordeaux, blindly. Subtle hints of earth but soft fruit and smooth tannins were at the forefront here. Would definitely buy this again.
