    April 20, 2016 - A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%) and Merlot (20%). Purple on the eye. Aromas of sweet dark berries and dirty, wet forest. Palate is luscious, very flavourful with soft tannins. Sipping nicely now with perhaps a few more years before sliding off into oblivion. Not the best effort we have seen from the people at Cos d'Estournel, but tres yummy at the moment and a nice way to sign off for the evening.

    May 8, 2015 - Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): Dark core with garnet rim; bell pepper, boxwood, red currant, smoke, cedar; nice density, gripping tannin, cinnamon, lower acid but good drinkability, oak, possibly struggled to ripen a bit (region and vintage maybe); called '06 St. Estephe; good.

    September 28, 2014 - Still young, and certainly best on day two.

    Plum, tobacco, charcoal, bing cherry. Nicely done. Will be great in a few more years.

    April 13, 2014 - Purple in color with cassis, green pepper, tobacco, grainy tannin; good though not as good as before.

    March 14, 2014 - Very dark core with thin dull garnet; purple flowers and fruit, oak, plush, green pepper, singular and slightly pent up though more complexity developed with time in decanter, perfumed, sexy, cassis, vanilla; tasty now with air or wait a few years; a steal for the song I paid.

Winedoctor

    (Goulée Médoc) This wine, created first in 2003, is produced by the team at Cos d'Estournel. I tasted that vintage at a dinner last year although did not write the wine up for Winedoctor as the tasting conditions weren't really favourable. The harvest here began on October 2nd, with an approximate yield of 20 hl/ha. This is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, matching the ratio in the vineyard. Like Pagodes de Cos, tasted alongside, this has a very toasty nose, with a concentrate ripeness of fruit. Dense, rich, creamy, very approachable, with a good ripe substance. Nicely integrated, and it has freshness and vigour too. Good wine.
