Bordeaux doesn't get better than this for $25.

I think this might be going through a slight dumb phase as the nose is a bit closed, but classic aromas are certainly present: All blackberry, cedar, oak/vanilla.

The bottle I opened had been in my cellar for about a year, lots of sediment had been thrown and it was evident in a mouth-feel that was much softer than I expected. Tannins are resolving perfectly. Medium (not quite full) bodied. Plenty of concentrated blackberry fruit and a great overall balance will see my remaining 9 bottles evolve for at least another 5 years.
