Similar to previous notes. A good but not great St. Emilion served with grilled flat iron steak last night. Did not decant. Initial nose of cassis, cedar, blackberry and spices, a bit short in the mid-range, and some tannins and a bit of bitterness in the finish. The bitterness diminished after an hour or so. Wine is certainly in its drinking range and should hold and possible improve for 5 years or so.
Nose of plums and spices, soft round tannins in the mid-range and a moderate finish. Served with grilled ribeye steak. This is a good, but not great wine. Like many of the 2006's it seems to be a bit short in the mid-range. Still, a nice wine for a weekend. Should keep for 5 years or so.
Better than last bottle; tannin has tamed a bit but is still a bit out of whack. Violets, plumb, cedar, black cherry. Nice acidity. If I had more, I'd wait another couple of years. 87 pts day 1, maybe 88 Day 2.
