Community Tasting Note

  • Chasse_spleen wrote: 89 points

    January 16, 2011 - Sometimes one's taste develops over the years - or maybe it is that some early enthusiasm wears off. This wine - which we initially were very impressed with - does not maintain that position when revisited some years later. It is now mature, with the tannins fully melted. Good acidity and fruit. But, unfortunately, the tar (or smoke) is for our current taste too overwhelming and onedimensional. Sorry, but the Medocs have nothing to fear from this style.
