This is rich and decadent on the nose with blackberry, damson, fruitcake and Asian spices: complex and well defined, very generous at the moment. Violets developing with further aeration in the glass. The palate has great weight and density, firm, sturdy tannins, good definition, assertive and perhaps even brash with confidence, leading to a chewy, reticent finish...Almost Pauillac-like in style at this early juncture, but the La Mission has the upper hand over Haut-Brion at the moment. eRobertParker.com

Licorice, eucalyptus and tar. Quite grippy on the palate. Drink of hold. Needs food.

2006 vintage. Good nose - mulberry, blackberry, earth and old wood. Developing. On the palate, medium body, medium acidity, medium concentration - some dilution on the mid palate - and medium plus length. Medium minus tannins - light and fluffy. Not a wine that will age for years but decent where it is now, albeit some green notes on the finish. Drink now until 2020.
