2002 Château Lascombes (France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux)

Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon, France, Margaux, Médoc, Red Wine

This one really feel more like a California Cab than a Bordeaux. Oak is noticeable, and the fruit is very dark and brambly. Velvet texture and dark, tarry cherry and cassis. Some leather, tobaco, and earth, but at present, the fruit is overpowering the rest of the wine. The only good news is that the fruit will most certainly outlive the ripe and serious tannins. Not in love with this wine, but I can see this pairing well with grilled beef. The fattier the cut, the better.

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.
