Friday, February 8, 2013 - Wow best bottle over past few years, surprising progress overn4 years. Deep crimson color with black core, slight aging at the rims, this full bodied beauty opens up with a nose of leather, lots of tobacco and earth, with some black currant and dark red berries. After an hour or so in the decanter, the nose shows much more fruit, scorched earth and tobacco. Excellent entry on thebpalate, this wine exudes class and finesse reminiscent of it's big brother, coats the mid palate, and a very long satisfying finish, great acidity and backbone, with tannins present but not a single hard edge. Lovelynwine, only 1 bottle left which I will keep for another few years as this wine has a long life ahead of it. One of the best Pavillon Rouge I've tasted.
