2006 Château Rouget
nose - pungent nose of smoke, mesquite, and roasted meat. This is the most distinctive nose of the evening - is it from the barrel treatment?? mouth - cornucopia of red and dark fruits, almost fruit punch like, yet fully dry. Considerable tannins. Already showing very well.

2005 Château Ducluzeau
nose - ruby red grapefruit! mouth - fruit punch, with a touch of bitterness on the finish making it highly reminiscent of 'Hawaiian punch'.

2005 Château Haut-Bages Libéral
nose - toasty oak.
mouth - light red fruit. i did not appreciate the spiciness that was touted. One of the more expensive wines of the night , yet paradoxically to me seemingly lacking in complexity.
