This was one of the more enjoyable Bordeaux I've had in awhile, despite my California-leaning palate and only 13% ABV. Smooth yet chalky tannins, and this went well with food. A bit lacking in fruit for my wife's palate, but I found this well balanced. Aromas and flavors of bramble, leather, tea, and spice. Just enjoyable. Me - 91, Wife - 89.
Dark ruby, mild nose of rose, black fruit, with a mild dose of earthiness and minerality. Smooth and soft, this wine is ready to drink. Not sure how much it will age but most likely won't fall off for a year or two.
Sexy, opulent, but structured Merlot-dominant blend, with a tiny bit of modern Left Bank character and depth that allows it to transcend the varietal boundaries and avoid simply monolithic grandeur. This is as good as it gets under $100. from Pomerol.
