Great bottle of wine. The last bottle I had almost 2 years ago was ho-hum, but this one was singing. Just a dark, dark color with a tremendous cassis and cigar box nose. Flavors were all about black currant, blackberry, and tobacco with some coffee grinds. Finishes well and although it is great to drink now, I imagine this can hold for many more years. Certainly worth its acquisition cost of $45 in 2005. At its current going rate of $70-$100, I would recommend to pass though as there are many wines from better vintages that can be had for less.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
