As expected a classic St Estephe and drinking very well. Straight from opening a well developed blackcurrant with plum. The apperance shows good aging but still brilliant in colour. Flavours of guava, cherry, black currant, tobacco, tropical fruit etc. Well ballanced although leaning slightly to the acidic. No aging left but great none the same.

The bouquet is musty yet clean...that's the mint...?go figure. Fruity yet spicy with cumin and coriander. On the palate well structured with forward tannins, only slightly overwhelming for the dark fruit with spicy and peppery undertones. Good acidity with a relatively long finish. Now that I've looked at my previous notes: Interesting how my appreciation for this bottle differs from that tasted in 2009. I make it a point not to look at my previous notes when I try a bottle I have evaluated before. The persistant qualities are a forward wine with definitive tannins, spicy overtones and a lot of backbone.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
