Tuesday, September 10, 2013 - Some Margaux elements, but has a spiciness and grainy tannic quality not really typical of such. Very drinkable and well-balanced.

If you have the chance, try and pick up some of those wines. The 2005 was great and I only have 2 bottles of that left. I went in on a full case of the 2009 after drinking a bottle and think it has about the same great potential, but hope the Margaux perfume develops as it was in there when I opened it. I think its a better value, but not as consistent as Cantemerle. I think Lanessan is a good alternative for the price, but it takes so much more cellar time.
