Community Tasting Notes (5) Median Score: 88 points

  • 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.

  • The smoke, tobacco, earth and blackberry characteristics are fully mature and should be consumed over the next 5 years or so.

  • Deep red in colour.
    Cassis on the nose but also something else I can't quite determine.
    Quite woody on the palate. Also rather drying. Not much fruit.
    Ok but I wouldn't seek this out.

  • Popped & poured. Lots of funk on the nose. Barnyard, cassis, and blackberries backed up by hints of vanilla from the oak and cranberries. Definitely smells richer than it tastes. Very thin bodied on all parts of the palate and finish. Sour cherries and hints of anise but otherwise the palate is dead. Acidity would be better if it didn't come with the off-balance sour cherries. Tannins light but noticeable.

    Style & Quality: C. Below average Bordeaux. Palate doesn't suggest that there is anything to wait for here. Even 6 years might have been too long for this wine.

    Value: D. At $29 / pop this wine certainly does not deliver. A grand vin with 6 years on it, This is as good as its going to get but don't pay over $12.

    Overall: C-
