94 Points

Tuesday, January 8, 2013 - Drunk a week or so ago. Despite my high rating I am just a smidge disappointed. First full bottle of high end Bordeaux and perhaps I was expecting a little more. No notes taken but I recall the nose being outstanding, the palate being rich and smooth and with a few hours decanting the wine was plush and enjoyable to drink....but....and perhaps I'm weird....it did remind me a lot of a very good Margaret river cabernet and didn't quite have the additional quality or X factor I was hoping for to lift it a level above. I think i wanted more personality...more spice, more tobacco, more green vegetal aspect. 2 more bottles, I will try again in 5 years......very, very good however.
