Classic rose petal nose. Considerable residual sugar on the palate held in balance with good acidity. A good accompaniment to the Nam Sod and Penang Curry. Long mouth watering finish. Drinks well now. Long life ahead.
Almost all you can ask of an old Bordeaux. Cedar, tobacco, and sweet fruit on the nose follows through on the palate. Well balanced wine that will hold on it's plane of maturity for decades. Probably will not improve. Could use a little more acidity. Still glad I have four more bottles.
