The second bottle of Thanksgiving 2011, this one continues to bring it.  I bought 2 cases many years ago and have been opening them on a regular basis.  Whilst not a blockbuster, it offers decent fruit, a good nose and the tannins are subdued, yet holding on.  For a “Third Growth” one would expect more, but let’s not forget that the 1855 classification of Bordeaux is so totally outdated that it doesn’t mean much anymore.  The average pro rating of 86 seems a little low, but I’m not complaining- giving it 3 stars for it’s taste, balance and enjoyment.  Would I pay the current price? Not a chance, good thing I got it cheap in 2003.
