2004 Château Clinet. If you want to know why Bordeaux is expensive, this wine explains it partly. Yes, there is a boatload of Bordeaux that is overhyped, but this stuff is worth every penny I paid. Just delicious cherry and plum wrapped in a leafy, autumnal tobacco note. So much going on and kept getting better and better for two days. This is drinking beautifully right now and pairs exceptionally well with fowl and game, (and beef as well although that would be my last choice among those options). 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that saw only 60% new oak.

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.
