This has begun to show well, Fruit forward with nose of alluvial notes and chocolate. Layers of rich dark fruit with some tobacco and cola like experience. Long finish of graphite and soft tannins maybe some cocoa. I thought this was a great bottle and demonstrates the patience required of the 2005 St Emilion Bordeaux.
Nose of dark fruit and smoke. Palate has tobacco and smoke with again plum or raspberry notes. Mouth coating tannins that open up to a long finish with dark chocolate notes. Still can lay down for another 5 years, but quite enjoyable today.
