really drinking well. dark rich savory and sweet with long persistent finish. This is a low acid open knit wine. Notes of leather and roasted coffee/toffee on the back I wouldn't say this has a lot of grace and finesse, but certainly delivered a good wine experience. 91-92
Plummy, velvety, not as full bodied or as powerful as a top Pomerol, quite elegant in fact, with a citric freshness to the finish that is very refreshing. Thankfully no wood and not overripe. Probably needs drinking over the next two years since I'm not sure it has the stuffing to last longer.
Drank at Jeannie's 50th bday weekend. Never had this before, but bought it when the 2000s were first released, likely after having read an RP review where he claimed it to be a 'sleeper' of the vintage. Dark purplish color, nose of dark fruits, & perhaps some lavender. More full bodied than expected, very plummy, jammy, highly extracted, soft tannins though still very evident in the juice, some spice too. A well made wine, but not my cup of tea. Lots of time left here for it to, perhaps, mellow a bit...I hope
