Black fruits, plum, graphite, cedar, leather & tobacco. This was drinking young & had a polished, silky texture with good tannin structure,

In a really great place but can still go the distance. Powerful stuff.

Tannins are fully resolved. Still fresh and with lovely soft, rich cassis, tobacco, and leather. I didn’t get any pencil lead, but otherwise classic Pauillac. Time to drink up though - this will begin to decline in the coming years.

Whee! Felt savory when the half bottle was first poured. Then graphite. Then mushroomy. Really enjoyable!

Starting to drink really well. Classic pauillac notes of lead pencil, cigar box, cassis, roasted bell pepper and gravel.

Fantastic bottle of classic Bordeaux in a nice spot. Leaning toward the less ripe side with serious tannin but it felt like a throw back to the 70s and 80s Bordeaux. Thank you John Rothermel!

Very elegant style of BDX. Classic aromas of black currant (very fresh) and some secondaries of cigar box and pencil shavings. Beautiful now, but will improve further with time. Polished finish. More please....
