Perfect mix of red shades by desk-light after a power failure. A range of red fruits on nose from cherries, currants, etc. but all red. Palate of supple fruit and "strict"supporting tannins yet a bit trim for a ripe vintage. Maintains a traditional claret lover's style while satisfying the modern clean fad. Classic and elegant and one day I might meet Anthony Barton. $80/bottle! Buy it, age it and open a few now if you must, and rock! JM
Muddy brick, garnet rim, great nose of cherry, red currants and cedar. Leads to sleek yet mouthfilling body with diverse terroir-like, earthy flavors on palate. Old classic claret style from an average vintage but much appreciated by traditional Bordeaux stylists. Very long finish. Just great. My heart is at.... 92at least
Deep purple color, tight nose of blue aged fruits, nicely preserved for the vintage, although a good vintage on this bank. Very textural and supple, merlot lush and not he grip of right bank Cab. Sav. but enough supporting tannins. Could last but great right now. Hedonistic as all fine Pomerol should be.
