Showing more age than it probably should, but delicious.

Beautiful fruit. Needs food. Long decant leads to a smooth long finish.

This wine was still a little right upon opening. Needed two hours in crystal to open. Cassis, plum, and cigar box meld into an alluring palette. Integrated oak adds to pleasing tannins and a long finish. It’s nice when it all comes together.

Nice St Julien expression - dark fruits, graphite and a long finish. Still a bit brooding and hasn’t quite figured itself out yet. I bet this’ll be a really nice wine in a few years - definite upside potential.

Classic left bank - still good tannin - well rounded with a medium - long finish. A hint of leather and blackberry on the nose. Drinking well now -likely in the sweet spot now with a year or two to run.
