What an insanely good deal this was at $24! (Futures prices for 2009 are closer to $100). Utterly delicious Bordeaux that's softened and opened brilliantly at age 9. Lovely perfume, ripe, deep flavors, mouth-coating texture, yet with absolutely no heaviness in the mouth. Complex mix of dark currants, tobacco, dried spices, with a tinge of soy sauce and mint. Elegant, long, and seamless, just a great bottle of wine. - HK 2012-07-16
