  • PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs
    -inky dark red/purple
    -ripe plum jam and cassis
    -OK acidity, med weight and concentration, somewhat chalky tannins, not overly complex but pleasant cassis and earth on mid-palate, respectable length with a hint of oak on the finish
    -nothing fancy but an altogether satisfying basic Bordeaux drinking well now with plenty of life left, a perfect match for hearty French bistro fare

  • Solid left bank for the price. Still rather tannic, with a coarse texture and slight bitterness going into the finish. This gives it a brawny masculine expression rather than elegant. Has a nice core of cassis and plum fruit and a rather expressive nose of mocha, flint, and cedar. Has room to improve, but approachable with food.

  • Still going strong and starting to show some maturity. Maybe lacking a little finesse and focus holds this from entering the 90's. still very enjoyable and great QPR.

  • This is a perfectly good Haut-Medoc, and exceptional for the $10 it can found for. Smoke, ash, spice and currants on a rather typical if generic left bank nose. Currants and a little red fruit mixed in on the palate that still has some very prominent and coarse tannins. Palate is just showing the first hints of fruit maturity. Moderate finish with a little mocha. Drinks like a cab based blend with merlot (I don't get the PV component). Will drink well for the next 5-7yrs.

  • Initially some reduction on the nose but this blew off. Nose has some black currants and blackberry, cedar spice, and hint of leafy herbs bordering on pipe tobacco. Palate has repeating black fruit and plum notes, with an inital atack of bell pepper. Coarse tannins and a moderate chocolate and earth finish. A very nice Haut-Medoc in a slightly forward style--and given the $10 price point, this is a steal. A bury rather than elegant wine. Drinks well now with air but should be at it's best in 3-5yrs. 89-90
