Wifey is unwell, and subtly directed me to focus on the French stuff, so here we are... For once, “I got my mind right, boss,” and let this breathe for 5 hrs, and lawdy, this is singing. The nose offers up new oak, cinnamon and a hint of molasses. The palate presents ripe and balanced. Tannins are still bold, but frame the wine superbly. Finishes with black fruits and uncommon sweetness for a bdx example. After my week-day sabbatical from alcohol, this represents a great three-finger salute (control-alt-delete).

Brett and new oak do more disservice to the wine than the 2002 vintage.

02 Cos deserves a pat on the back for this effort during a challenging vintages. The wine was tight on the palate, still staying closed the next day, but had an interesting nose with licorice and exotic spice wafting around one's head. The next day I discovered an extra complexity of tomato leaf that I like but may not be to everyone's liking.

Opened like a normal 2002, all vegetal, but two hours later it was bursting with fruit! Give it time and it will impress you.

Huge tobacco, cassis, mineral primal core. Some big oak. Juicy, ripe, boring. Meh.

Tasting great! A little minty on the nose and plenty of red fruit in the palate.

Classic & classy. One more proof that 2002 is a vintage worth rediscovering.
