It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

Second wine (or, as they claim, a separate wine) of fame 2nd growth Leoville Las Cases. This St Julien leans toward a more international style, with riper fruit (think red fruits), cedar and plenty of vanilla from the oak barrels. Certainly well-made, with fine concentration, this wine lacks the character that one might expect from a left bank Bordeaux. The excessive use of oak obscures the St. Julien terroir, making this wine just another Cab_merlot blend that could have been made anywhere. Too much money ($38 on release, new vintages are even dearer). Tasted Oct 2012.
