This wine didn't quite have what it takes to make it this far.

It has aged fairly well but it's past it's prime.

Brick-brown color. Some oxidative notes, woody, dusty stale-smoke nose. Fruit has dried out into leathery, earthy notes. Some fruitcake flavors. Interesting but average.

In my opinion a mediocre wine is best drunk young while it still has some life left.

This is an over-the-hill, totally drinkable, if mediocre, Bordeaux and not at all worth paying $50 for.
