Monday, September 17, 2012 - A small 2002 Bordeaux Retrospective (Maude's Liquor Bar, Chicago IL): nose: very tight nose that is unforgiving. Tones of creosote, loads of coffee grinds as well along with rich tones of dark red cherries and some berries.
taste: medium/full bodied with some chewy tannins. This was brutish for me with bigger tones of dark red cherries, creosote, lots of coffee grinds and dark red fruits.
overall: This was just as unforgiving for me now as it was four years ago. It's still pretty big and brutish for me and likely in need of more sleep.
