Lots of distinctive Bordeaux character here with a hint of graphite, black and red fruit along with some star anise...

This is slender, easier going, fairly charming young Bordeaux. Look for new oak spice atop typical curranty fruit,...

Simple, vanilla-oak tinged, firm, dusty, astringent tannins and modest length/depth. Basic stuff. Tasted February...

Cork was a bit dried out, even though it was purchased only in April 2011. Nevertheless, it did taste/smell like very delicious dark chocolate. Gold medal winner in 2010. Aromas of cherries, herbs, smoked wood aromas. On the palate - lots of lilac/violet flavours, plus some toasty smoked oak. Medium-full bodied with lovely, rich tannins. Long finishing fruit. Could have been held for another year, but definitely ready to drink now. Tasted June/2011.
