NOSE: plum, cherry, soft cassis, raspberry leaf, wet earth (mud!), a little fig, and a mild toffee/coffee note that I associate w/Bordeaux. All very restrained.

TASTE: well made. Leaves, earth, cherry, plum, smooth tannins with that nice toffee bordeaux taste. A little cassis on the finish. Good, grownup wine! Not worth the price to me - but good, grownup wine. 92.

2014 vintage. Plushy nose. That big-bodied, Malescot style. Voluptuous and sexy mouthfeel. Silky tannins with a little plummy cherry exeunt. Wine of seduction. Watch out.

Funky noise, purple, nice tannins. Earthy.

Exquisite! Dark earthy extracts with hints of blue berry and currant, minerally edge, tar. Smooth, round but present tannins giving it a lingering finish.

Short decant...Deep plum, forest floor, black berry, cedar bark, a hint of peppercorn. Green bell pepper and eucalyptus are highlighted to. Plush on the palate with generous berry fruit, well balanced, stands up well with ribeye steak. Moderate finish. High quality fruit but a touch thin and shorter than desired.

First sip made me think I opened too early. But then POW! This baby opens up. One of the most powerful Bordeaux’s I’ve had. Can taste the Cab. Half bottle. Get more!
