Red Rhone Blend more

Perfumed nose of violets, a lot of barnyard and smoke and a little raisiny and sour on the finish. Good acidity and tannins come through although not immediately. Powerful yet elegant. Definitely has character. Last bottle was more refined and less barnyardy.

Wine is a nice straw color. On the nose, is cut grass. Some sweetness of peach and nectarine. This is a fully body wine with a full mouth feel. Sharp notes of mineral and finish of dry oak and slight toasted butter.

I have not liked most all the Bordeaux wines I have consumed, although relative to other wines I haven't many of them and none have been high on the classification list. But I bought a case of 2005s to give them a try as the folks at K&L (and many other places) raved about them. Well, now after a few years of aging I can now say that I'm a fan. Although not from a top-notch chateau, this wine has the fruit of a mellow CA Cab yet the complexity and "good funk" that I was looking for.

I have nothing against California wine, but I bought this expecting a Bordeaux character, which is completely missing. If I had wanted California I would have bought some, not this. Very sad that a well made wine in the past has gone to become so characterless.

I'm surprised at all the positive notes. I was promised great things for this and this bottle was very disappointing. Thin, sharply acidic, not a lot of fruit and no length. Vinegary strawberries with a farmyard element. Unpleasant.
I tasted it when opened, decanted and kept struggling on tasting at intervals for 5 hours with no improvement.
