    (Château de Pibarnon Bandol) Rich ruby-garnet in the glass, with notes of plum, tar, pancetta, and stewed tomato, the wine is soft, round, and earthy at first, but then slightly gripping fruit tannins and fresh acidity kick in. This Bandol is showing its maturity.

    (Chateau de Pibarnon Bandol Rouge) #1; COLOR-dark; NOSE-dark chocolate & cranberry; gorgeous; a little new car leather smell as well; PALATE-very big wine; quite tannic; this wine has "balls"; good structure; lots of dark fruit exploding on the mid-palate (black currants; blackberries, blueberries); then transitions to grainy / earthy tone on the back-end; I like the bitter tannins; a black tea component on the finish as well; the length is quite silky and smooth; get little itsy bitsy blueberries dancing in your mouth and I like it; the flavor profile is exceptional; great length; this is a real stellar effort at $38 bones; this wine trumps many $70-$100 CdP's, Bordeaux's and Cali Cabernets; this is spectacular and well made; will last 7-15 years easy; great with a steak; great wine; WS-95; GV-92+
