Left bank vs right bank WTF Group night. People paired up and poured wines in pairs with same vintage and opposite bank. Everything enjoyed blind.

@Delectable Wine : This is a Saint Emilion Bordeaux. I didn’t see it in the database.

This was a random pick by me at the local wine shop. JSuckling 95 and RParker 94. Unique right bank. After about 2hrs in the decanter, it had a bit of funk to it that many left banks have at pop and pour. Cali reminiscent. Dark fruit profile with dark chocolate. Dirty chocolate covered cherries, fleshy berries on the palate and fantastic aromatics.

Fresh and pure black fruit, never cloying, coffee bean, and toast. More mineral on the finish upon opening, and graceful tannins throughout. Drink now.

Modern, chocolate tinged oakiness frame red and ripe dark berries, completing the sweet and caressing tannins which are youthful but ripe. Great balance on the rich finish.

Garnet deep, deep intense aroma, with all 3 aromas, feather, leather, dark cherry, savory, m+ tannins, m+ body, smoky, raisin. Long finish, need decanting

Beautiful aroma, long finish and freshness. Fun Bordeaux that does better with a couple hours decanting

I'm 34 and I have heartburn. Apparently I bought this 3 years ago. Don't think my closet is the best place for anything for that long

This bottle has a meatier and more brambly edge to it than others I've had, at least on initial pour. Still a fantastic Bordeaux.

This bottle has a little more funk than prior bottles. But still showing very well. The 2012 vintage in general has some great value and surprises from Bordeaux.

94 Parker pointer. New world style Bordeaux. Smells and tastes much more like Napa than St. Emilion. Loads of fruit and forest floor. Beautiful!
