A really nice surprise. I made braised beef shank on Saturday night when we had a couple of friends over. I popped this not knowing what to expect, but this was such a delicious wine from the start. Fully mature and drinking at peak, the nose on this wine was heavenly. Tertiary aromas and lovely black currant and red cherry. Cigar box and graphite. Good structure, velvet fruit, lovely acidity, fantastic balance. Shows how much pleasure and value Bordeaux can deliver, especially with the right foods. I bought this for $30 from a fellow wine enthusiast, and the bottler could not have been in better condition.
