Great wine. Waxy at first. After an hour, smooth, with a bouquet of graphite, earth, and fruit. Soft full mouth feel of fruit. Not a long lingering finish. Very nice wine.
I guess this wine is consistent. I agreed with other reviews on this wine, then realized they were from 2000 not the 2009 that I was drinking. I had to let it sit for an hour to let the waxiness dissipate. After decanting, it has a nice balance of graphite, fruitiness and that round, earthy/loamy taste/feel. I bought this to compare it to 2009 Bordeaux. Will have to have one next!
