Excellent Bordeaux whose quality is far beyond its lowly Bordeaux Superieur classification. Deep, dark, youthful purple in color. Big, ripe red with a boatload of tannin but with terrific grip in the mouth and finish. Broad, lip-smacking flavors of dark currant, plum/prune, black cherry, cinnamon, smoldering oak. Long, full, completely satisfying, and yet still a few years away from full maturity. - HK 2013-02-22
