Lagrange (St Julien)
Consumed on the early side because it spent ~1yr aging in ambient temp rather that 60 deg F. As such, clearly at peak. Beautiful, long nose with notes of blackberry, sour cherry, and hint of vanilla. Soft palate with some slight earthen tones. Consumed with rib-eye steak and broiled asparagus with EVOO - an excellent combination that brought out the juicy flavors in the meat. Saved for a second day tasting using a vacuum-sealer; the wine did not disappoint on the second day, losing little of its flavors.
Requires at least 20-30 minutes to open after cellaring at 58 Degrees. Soft cherries and blackberries on the nose. A firm tannic palate with typical blackberries and cassis with a hint of leather and earthy tones. Could probably benefit from further aging.
