I don't know what the rest of you were eating when drinking this wine, but it could not have been too complimentary. You MUST enjoy this incredible wine with a good steak. It is not advisable, but imperative. The richness of the beef compliments and brings out the chewey tannins bringing out a complex and smooth sensation. Regaling in dark chocolate, woodland berries and smoky oak, this wine will linger on the palette long after the last swallow. Don't tell your prententious wino friends the price. Let them taste first and savor the bottle, then spring it upon them. To those that didn't enjoy this wonderful bordeaux try it again paired with, as stated, steaks or a nice grilled lamb.
Enticing aroma and good balance. I could not, however, find the broad array of flavors and the complexity that I expected after reading other reviews. It was nice... but not great.
It has a very light, mineral, dry taste. Normally, I drink cabernets, and shiraz or syrah. This wine however, seemed very flat, light taste, no structure. I did not enjoy it at all. I've had less expensive wines that were more complex, and harmonious.
