Slightly slow to open on th nose, but some pretty spice and cedar incense hiding behind the red berry fruit - almost like a tropical brush fire. Nice dark, seductive deep red robe. Pleasant, soft tannins on entry with more red fruit (red currant) mid-palate. Medium finish. This is somewhat lighter stuff than expected, and very approachable now. A nice, smooth, good value Paulliac. Cellar 4 years - tops.
Chocolate and tobacco with depth and many layers. Very smooth.

External Reviews for Chateau d'Armailhac Pauillac
WA 90-93pts. - IWC 90-92pts. - According to Robert ParkerAbundant tannin in addition to a deep ruby/purple hue, superb purity, and a lovely texture are found in this delicious Pauillac. One of the finest d'Armailhacs I have ever tasted, it is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that achieved an amazing 13.3% natural alcohol. Aromas of black currants, creamy oak, and earth emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort. It should be drinkable in 4-5 years, and will last for two decades or more. According to Steven Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: Deep red-ruby. Currant, blueberry, leather, graphite and nutty oak on the nose. Silky-sweet and large-scaled for this wine, with perfectly integrated acidity and a deep minerality leavening the wine's volume. This boasts terrific volume and finishes with sweet tannins and excellent racy length. Getting better and better in barrel.
Lovely licorice and currant aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a soft, fruity finish. Nicely done for the vintage. J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Armailhac, D 6000ml
($46-$53) Bright red-ruby. Raspberry, mocha and coffee aromas perked up by pepper, tobacco leaf and fresh herbs. Silky on entry, then suave and refined in the middle palate, with perfumed flavors of redcurrant, leather and peppery herbs. Finishes sub... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
