Really well done left bank style wine. Elegant and medium bodied. Good depth of flavor and acidity.

1+ hr decant. Medium purple color. Nose filled with cigar ash, tar, cherry, and blacktop. Excellent texture, but an average flavor. Not bad, but nothing that jumps out at me. Good finish.

Thought I grabbed the '07 but it ends up being the '12 tonight! Happy accident! Nice deep purple color. Phenomenal nose followed by luscious flavors of cherry, chocolate, and dates. Excellent structure and the finish lingers forever! Absolutely love it!

I know this is a wine built for aging, but honestly this was very enjoyable right now. Deep fruit, tannins that are already on the silky side, excellent structure. Certainly more exuberant than a Bordeaux, but not at all in a cloying or over extracted CA kind of way. Very nice.
