Pnp. This has softened a fair bit over the last 6 or so months. Still a fairly dark garnet, good fruit and plenty of oak on the palate but the rough edges are gone and do not really see the structure for longer term aging here. Comes across as rather simple, pleasant but made a bit along the lines of an inexpensive new world Cab. Short to medium finish. Better with food than on its own in my eyes. Drink now.
Consistent note. Brought again to a bbq. I like this wine - it's not a very expressive Bordeaux, and the finish is rather short but it has nice balance and weight / texture and accompanies food very well as it does not force itself into the spotlight. Seems a bit tight, wonder if it will still open more up aromatically, or rather dry out given the robust structure and not abundant fruit. 88-89
Brought 4 bottles to bbq. Light to medium body, medium tannins, dark fruit, forest floor. Worked well with the meat. Otherwise a bit on its own, might not have enough fruit for the structure so would drink now with food.
nose of dark fruit, dark wood and plums - also a touch of roses...Palate is plums, forrest Wood, mushrooms, and tobaco - very dark and weagthy style in particular for a 2. wine. Powerful and intense but with good balance fo tanin and acicdity - a good buy....will improve over the next 10 years at least I guess....
