    May 20, 2019 - La Cabanne's 2005 iteration is a deep red/garnet blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Although the latter grape injects a substantial green/minty element, there is still enough Montmorency cherry and red currant fruit from the Merlot to make this wine, now 14 years of age, quite enjoyable. Accented with notes of tobacco, espresso and loamy earth, it is a medium-bodied offering with seamless alcohol (13.5%) and well-integrated oak. At this point the tannins are light-to-medium in weight but still quite grippy in texture, with the rusticity being pervasive throughout the middle palate and medium-length finish. Although the tannins still need to sort themselves out, I doubt that they will be able to do so in a time frame that would allow for preservation of the fruit. As such, I suspect that consumption over the next 5-6 years will be the most prudent course. Drink now-2025.

    April 16, 2019 - Quite decent Pomerol. Still going strong for another 3-4 years.

    March 14, 2019 - Hints of black licorice, fennel, and anise, this wine is still very drinkable, even though it’s slightly past it’s prime. Color is just slightly bricky. Still needs 10 minutes in the glass to fully open up. Did not disappoint.

    February 9, 2019 - Mature, easy drinking, plummy wine, with a light truffle accent to the red plum core of fruit. Round, with a bit of rusticity in the texture, this medium bodied wine shows a touch of green leafy notes in the red berry finish. Drink this over the next few years, as it is only going to fade from there.

    September 14, 2018 - Color with decidedly less brick than I expected. Astringent. Decanted for 1.5 hours. Never improved. Rather blah. Disappointed overall. My impression seems to conform with others.
