  • A solid everyday Bordeaux that is drinking well right now. Paired with grilled skirt steak. Similar to my prior notes but much more pronounced nose, more balanced fruit and integrated tannins on the finish. Easy drinker and terrific QPR.

  • I have had this bottle 5-6 times over the past couple of years and think it is a pretty good value. Good fruit and balance, classic style, finish is not terribly long, and the nose is nothing to write home about, but all in all it is a well done wine and certainly appropriate as a holiday gift or when entertaining. Agree with the flavor profiles in other reviews, but disagree that this wine is not complex. I found the typical berry/cherry notes, and hints of liqueur, leather. It should be noted that I came home late from work and did not decant this bottle at all.

    Brookie prepared reuben (vegetarian) sandwiches and baby potatoes with pepper, salt, parsley, garlic, and butter. The wine is a good match for steak, chicken, veal, etc. etc. etc. Brookie agrees with the tasting notes but thinks the nose is brine with some green pepper. Ah Brookie! She gives it an 89.

    I think the real debate here is whether this bottle should be cellared a few more years. there is no doubt that it could be. I have enough bottles left that I can open one every year, but if you are down to your last two, I say wait until it's 10th birthday. Very good effort from an epic vintage.
