If someone else pays for it, a pretty good 2008. Far from peak. Noble if a little blunt.

2008 Vintage: not really a bad wine, but I expected a bit more from this producer. It is a rather simple Bordeaux with a ripe plum/dark cherry core, a touch of green leaves and menthol, violets, and lighter than expected tannins. Again- far from a "bad" wine, but just lacking the layers and structure I would have expected from a St. Estephe Bordeaux. If you have one, go ahead and pair it with a casual meal, but don't go out of your way to buy one, or save it for a special meal.

Had this with rack of lamb cooked with garlic, honey, and rosemary. A perfect accompaniment.
