Drank 6/1/17 with a Ribeye Steak. Excellent pairing. Nose of black currant, cherry, and a hint of green bell pepper. Palate of black currant, licorice, and cocoa powder. Medium body with silky, well integrated tannins. Medium to long finish. 3/21/9/4/4 +50= 91 pts

Good value, solid structure, but tannins are a bit tough. Will get better.

Had in the back of the wine locker and said what the hell. What a surprise. This is terrific. Huge difference from last tasting 6 yrs ago - but as I said then, it had potential!!! Shows cherries, currant, cigar box, forest floor and finishes with crushed gravel. In a good place now, and probably for another few years.

Here's my advice. Any 2009 Bordeaux...Leave it alone for at least another five years. And that's just for the Haut Medoc. God only knows for the heavy hitters. (If there is a Delectable way not to rate a wine please let me know.) September, 2020: Took a peek and was pretty impressed with the journey. So I’m upping it to 8.8. Perhaps BBQ pork ribs with charred sweet white corn was all that the wine needed.

Deep red- very slight purple tone. Lactic note, methyl anthranilate?, grapey, some microbial note. Jammy boysenberry, blackberry. Same grippy fill tannins, acid in check-not rising above. Jammy boysenberry retro, some green stem showing through and a little phenolic. Most "American" palate of the wines tasted (and consequently my favorite)
