Although 2002 is a "lesser" year in Bordeaux, there was a lot of sun, and made for a great fruit and earth based wine here. The color is a rich Bengal-ruby red. The nose immediately expresses chocolate, pipe tobacco, and a subtle good quality cinnamon (maybe mexican?). The mouth is smooth and rich, with smooth tobacco and earthy notes - a virtual walk through the cellars of an ancient wine cellar in Bordeaux. I was a bit congested when tasting this, so I couldn't pick up everything, but this is a wine to try if you can.
