To me this is classic Pomerol but a bit less mellow. Nice earthy right-bank style, inviting spicy, dark-berry flavours. But what separates this wine from the field is its powerful tannins. Not that i'm complaining--they're still smooth and pleasant. But they do grab you and don't want to let go! Wow.
