Purchased 4/06, received 12/06. Cost $21. Upon first opening, aromas of funk, earth, and leather. As it opens up, the earth remains with the addition of plums, cassis, and some herbal notes. Silky texture. Tastes like a cross between Burgundy and Bordeaux. Still awkward. Will be interesting to see what happens to it over the next 2-4 years.

What a strange wine.. I really cant make up if I like it or not. Its kind of light bodied for an 03, yet it has both plummy, woody and earthy tones to it. Still with nice acidity and evident though tamed tannins, yet somehow overly simple. For the price tag I suppose it delivers, and could be, that its just passing through some phase and getting ready to come out as the big surprise. Honestly, eyes closed I probably would not have pinned it as a Bordeaux.. Not sure what Id has guessed actually

This is one of those plush, red Bordeaux that is er approachable today. This is due to the fact that there's 40% of Merlot in this blend - an unusually high amount for a left bank wine. Aromas of spice and plum dominate.
