Yet another showstopper from the great ’09 Bordeaux vintage. A nice purple/red color that hinted of red berry and oak on the nose and transcended to show currants, raspberry and blueberry on the palate. A really good tannic structure will make this wine last yet it is drinking beautifully right now. Balanced and classy, this is a good drinking wine. I’m stumped at what I would pair it with though. Bang for the buck gives this 4 stars and 89 points in my book.
