Decanted softly to remove sediment. Bright garnet color with nice haziness. Highly herbal component, very open aromatics. Cigar box and gravel, red currant and cherries. A fair amount of brett which isn't a problem for me, but this wine comes off as surprisingly stern and austere. Simply not enough fruit to balance the funkiness on the mid palate. I'd be curious to find another bottle to see degree of variation, which I suspect is considerable.

Celebrating my buddy Luke's birthday at Town Hearth in Dallas. Talk about over the top style/decorations! More chandeliers than I could count and yes, that's a yellow submarine in the picture. Not pictured is the old Aston Martin by the kitchen and two Ducati bikes above the bar (which is on the menu as a "Primo Side" and can be ordered for a cool $75K

Heaps of black and red dried fruits on the nose. Ton of finesse and structure that leads to maduro cigar with a tight smooth finish.

Great aromatically. A little lacking in acidity to really do it for me.

A great vintage from Bordeaux that is still a baby with a good hand of fresh earth tobacco spice and this is the lower portion of the vineyard which is sand light gravel and a bit of clay. Has very good structure and depth of fruit with firm tannins and acidity holding things firmly in place this is wine is still quite youthful with layers of fresh earth dark spices and a long finish very layered and should last another 10+ years. Finish 45+. Excellent still a bit dry at the end cedar cigar box spice and more coming out as the wine opens
