A little barnyardy. A little light fruit. Overall an unexceptional but pleasent wine, if it wouldn't be for the amazing, unexpected aroma explosion of rose pedals in the mid palate. Very unusual. Shared the wine with group of 4 and all of us had the same experience.
Opened with friends- no formal notes. Secondary aromas. Showed beautifully resolved tannins and secondary savory notes of meat, tar and flowers that were reminiscent of Northern Rhone, accented with black cherry. Nice depth and length. Perfectly mature- drink now.
Curious about some of the reviews here; fruit and tannin are quite well resolved but still in balance, with robust structure and good length. Benefited greatly from a 1hr decant, really rounded out, and was still good day 2. Forest fruits, sweet and smoky tobacco, moderate length. A touch more oak than I enjoy. A good value at its peak. No need to wait unless you like your Bordeaux super mature. I think it is in balance now.
