2005 vintage. From magnum. The usual feminine/Margaux flavor & scent profile. Light bodied. Finished a little hot but not objectionably so. Sexy. At the top of its game.

Very evolved, elegant. Olives, dried fruits...I was expecting an explosion of flavors. Cork was intact. 1986 Vintage

Perfect 10 event. Balanced and elegant cabernet that is a bit fruitier than most. 2010 vintage. Would be delicious with food. Drinkable now but can age longer. Has a bit of new European quality.
