Good value in traditional Bordeaux, with surprising density and length for the money. Expect very ripe almost pruny,...

Nose of an expensive and complex wine. First glass tasted well over the hill and pruney. Needs to breathe and then it opens up and volatile funkiness disappears leaving a woody old world wine with good length and complexity. Needs food but good deal. Drink now but let breathe.

Powerful and complex nose of petrol, tar, and pine leading to cassis, ripe dark fruit, and spice; less body than one would wish for, but still deep, rich, and rewarding, with bold but unobtrusive oaky tannins; perhaps could have used another few years in the cellar, but solid overall and outstanding value for such a serious, sophisticated wine.
