Graceful yet powerful…black and blueberry, menthol, vanilla spice, lead pencil, slight jalapeño, mocha, brick color, acid diminished, tannins super smooth and finishes like cali cab…fruit forward and lush…cork fell apart but wine fortunately did not…

Definitely should have given this at least 24 hours to open. Way too young to drink. Don't open unless it's 15 years or older. These wines can age 70 to 100 years. So they say.

2006 in 2017. Great Brdx style blend. Dark and dense. It struck me that after a decade it doesn't taste like its aged a day.

Silky dark red fruit with hints of licorice and tobacco.

I love this wine for its elegance. Flavored unfold seamlessly with no tannins to speak of.
Just love it.

It's excellent, obviously, but I cannot connect with all this hype. Disclaimer: I'm a California ignorant kinda guy.

Still drinks incredibly young. Lots of life still within this one. Like fine Bordeaux in its delivery of minerality and earthy complexities that is severely lacking in Napa.
