A ravishing wine. Concentrated black cherry fruit, with a tart baked quality rather than roasted, with mocha, followed by a medley of tertiary flavors; sous bois, animal hide, hot clay, and especially truffle. With extended air time, the animal aromatics are subdued and better integrated, and the fruit becomes seemingly fresher, and unlit tobacco on the finish. Velvety tannins and salubrious acidity. Throws a good bit of sediment.

Very nice. Deep black cherry. Nice finish. Getting better with air.

For the money, this is top notch but I can't give it 4 of 4 on an absolute basis. Good fruit, classic Pessac, nice finish (but not great). Perfectly nice for most purposes.

Celebrated the Tiger Masters wine and opening night of game of thrones. On the nose I thought this might be overpowering, but on the palate this was elegant and had a lot of finesse. Violets, currant, and graphite. Drinking really well right now.

Developing very well. More black fruits showing now. Black cherry, plum, vanilla, and cigar box. Very good. This has a long life ahead of it so no rush to drink.

Rich, cherry fruit, intense, amazing wine. Perfect for a rainy gloomy night and after dinner.

60 min decant prior to the Eagles game. Aromas of black cherry and some methanol. BlackBerry, and oak mainly on the palate. Still young and not yet at it's peak...
