The pencil box! The sweet vanilla of tobacco! The cassis that goes on! And every structural element worked. Very, veryveryvery lovely. Not crazy in the way that my head was spinning but sometimes you want a wine that isn’t just there for you but also is just a lil bit special🍷

Vintage 2012 - The difficulty of top vintages is that you have to wait so long before the wine is at it’s prime. This 2012 is drinking great right now, beautiful balance and smooth. Vivid. #pauillac

Fruity, gentle, smooth and pleasant. Not sweet or dry. Not much tannins. A bit of bitterness. Lots of cherry after taste. Like a laid back, refreshening, relaxing n pleasant young lady.

Turbid, deeply concentrated, blue black core saturated to a thin garnet rim. Medium plus intensity of ripe fruit, fresh florals, and dried herbs. Black currant dominates with layers of lilac, green bell pepper, cocoa powder, toast, black pepper and graphite. A dry wine with medium plus body, smooth texture, medium acid, refined forward moving astringency, a touch o viscosity, well integrated high alcohol 13.5% throws no heat. Concentrated, mouth filling lilac perfume precedes a long lasting black currant, black pepper finish. Bitterness noted but low. A well balanced, complex wine although a little confusing with Syrah due to the color and concentration of black pepper that lingers on the finish. Classic Bordeaux aromas with ripe but balanced new world styling.
