Another good "off brand" Bordeaux from the 2000 vintage. Good richness, intriguing smoky/musky nose though with a bit of intrusive vegetal edge. Ripe in the mouth with recognizable Bordeaux cassis and cedar character. Still young but well balanced and with the fruit depth to be enjoyable now. Good buy these days when Cab expenses are getting way out of hand. - HK 2005-04-03

[HK  2012-11-04] Tasted this wine several times in 2012. It was pretty much gone - the green, woody, vegetal edge had taken over the nose, though the flavors were still more or less OK. Rating as of Nov. 2012: 72.  User Rating: 72.
