I learned that I am not good at tasting young Bordeaux. Everything that I look for in Bordeaux is clearly a result of aging and I'm still figuring out how to judge the younger wines. Most tastes seemed brutally tannic and underdeveloped. There were some real highlights and some wines that were just poorly balanced.
The structure of most of the wines signal an interesting life ahead...I don't have the experience to really pinpoint their progressions, though.
