Popped and poured. Amazing wine right out of the gate. Great Bordeaux typicity and none of the spoofilation I was fearful of encountering. Soaring nose of cigar box, black currant, earth, and floral aromas. Nice and long on the palate with good grip and sturdy structure, but definitely drinking great right now. Finishes text-book. Just a pleasure to drink. Served with pan-roasted grass-fed ribeyes in a cognac peppercorn sauce, lacinato kale and beets.

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.
