Château covers 170 acres separated from Château Lafite, along the southern edge, by a stream. A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon & 38% Merlot. Rich berry aromas with floral and spices, very pleasant. On the palate blueberry and wild berry flavors with licorice and toasty oak notes. Lingering rich finish on soft juicy tannins, drinking well and still has room to go. Very Nice second label!

2nd label of the Second Growth from St. Estephe, Cos de Estornel. Most certainly a supurb example of a second label from a highly recognized producer. It is still way young, so it needed ample time to breathe - about 4 hours. The wine is concentrated and dark crimson in color. The nose is very inviting: it smells as if I am in a sort of man cave, full of old leather furnishings and cigar boxes in the humidor in the back, and fresh spring air blowing the faint smell of a rocky dust from a gravel road, with freshly baked blackberry pie on the counter. The pallet exhibits firm structure, and notes of black plums, tobacco, iron-y minerality, anise, and a lingering finish of stewed berries and smoked dark chocolate. This is a cellar piece in need of proper age. Its rustic grit and firm hold will soften with many more years. Hold and drink 2020-2035. Cheers! $69.99

Paired perfectly with a grilled strip steak. Decanted for 2 hrs. Red fruits, tobacco, currant, and a touch of licorice. Ideally still needs 3 to 5 yrs to come together more and for the tannins to integrate further.

Garnet with slightly lighter garnet rim, dried cherry and cedar nose with a little bit of funky barnyard at the end, smooth full palate with refined tannin and long finish. Drinks like a wine twice it's price.

Very nice after 7yrs in the bottle, and while not rough at all you could tell it would get even better with another 5-10.
