I was not sure if I should open such a young Bordeaux, but I felt like I needed something tannic to go with tonight’s dinner.  I was correct, this wine is a baby and somewhat closed for business.  It came with a muted nose of dark fruits and a touch of heat.  Initially I got blackberry torte and oak, lots of it.  Medium tannins and a bright acidity came across with sour cherries on the mid palate.  This wine is too young to enjoy right now and needs another 3 years to fill out.  Drink from 2017 till 2020.  I paid $30 for it and am going with 89 points and 3 stars.  Salut….
