    May 16, 2017 - Mid-brick, amber edges. Similar impressions as previous: earthy, terroir, smokey, cedar nose; mid-body; balanced; decent tannins; long, semi-tight fruity finish. w/filet

    May 11, 2017 - Purchased 2012, perfect cork and fill. Red core, lighter at rim. Cassis, earth, tobacco on nose. Medium body, tannins mostly resolved, good balance, nice sweet complexity, medium finish, excellent.

    December 15, 2016 - This did better after open for a few hours, but very nice right away. Needs the time to really show all the complex flavors.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Cos d'Estournel) Tight....tight . . . . tight. Great nose of chestnuts, mint, blackberries, black cherries, cassis, cedar and minerals. Just a deep, foresty St. Estephe nose. Concentrated and super-ripe with sweet fruit, pretty firm tannins, and a long very nicely delineated finish. Excellent quality but still an infant. Would nice to check in again in 7 years.
