    May 8, 2016 - Beautiful ruby red with browning rim, nose was pure Haut Brion, plum, vanilla oak - palate was long on the finish, perfectly integrated tannins, still a little plum fruit not pithy but tertiary notes of tobacco appearing. While this is perfectly drinking now, I don't think it will improve - best to drink up in next couple of years. 4/5

    April 16, 2016 - This wine has really improved over the past few years when we thought it may be at its peak and now on the downside. Juicy red fruit with very soft integrated tannins with balancing acidity. Delicious. Think it will keep, though drinking exceptionally well now.

    March 20, 2016 - My btl and I largely agree with R&Rler who was at the same dinner. Didn't live up to my hopes. Not enough Pessac tobacco from this one. Mainly the tannins where a bit strong and as R&R said this wine may be in decline.

    March 20, 2016 - Monthly Tasting Group: Bordeaux with Some Real Honeys (Victory 44, Mpls, MN): Small pour, I liked it, but a bit more lean than I recall, dark berry fruits, dusty tannins. Feels like this is on the down swing based on previous experience.

    March 19, 2016 - Decanted for 4 hours plus and drunk over 2 evenings. Slightly musty nose, palate was a real mixture, strong tannin but extremely dry on first night. By second night more fruit had appeared and the wine was even smoother, very acceptable for the price.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Chateau Bahans Haut Brion) This was shockingly open with classic Graves on the nose. Weedy tobacco, tar, leather, dark berries and mineral. Sappy and full of fruit in the mouth with an excellent finish. Even more open on day 2 with more sap and density. If anybody has these crack one open as it is singing.
