Dark dirty red. Raspberry, cola, and spice nose. Medium bodied, cranberries, sharp cherries, green olives, rustic tannins, dark chocolate, good acid, and a red berry infused medium to long finish. Very nice.
Unknown how long this was opened. My wife brought 1/2 a bottle home from a weekend with the gals. Very strong scents of leather and tobacco. The tobacco and leather combine on the palate to show some age, though there's still some fruit and freshness showing. Minerality and dryness show themselves as well. We had 2 bottles open tonight and this didn't hold up to the 09 Auclair Left Blend but it is a very nice wine, especially for the price.
