Opaque, deep garnet color, good clarity. The smells are smoke, earth, blackberry, and dark fruit. The tastes are cherry, blackberry, espresso, cedar, black olive. The tannins are stout and there is some heat here.
Dark purple still. Nose of blue and black forest fruit, really fresh, with cassis and spices. Brooding and closed. Wow, I love the freshness and purity of the blue fruit here. Tannins in spade but of good quality. Wait till 2020 for this wine.

(Chateau Beau-Séjour-Bécot St Emilion) Rather appealing although very dark style of fruit, but importantly it has freshness and perfume alongside what is undeniably a very meaty depth of fine fruit. The palate seems a little soft at first but it has some very admirable fruit, with a good depth of flavour with only a faint, gamey quality to it. Lots of tannins, a touch hard, firm acidity, lots of good components here. This should come very good with appropriate time in the cellar.
