Double blind from a small capped bottle (in a flight of the 88,85, & 81): Pretty nose - definite age with nice tertiary notes - some green, some tobacco, some carob some pencil lead - it’s got that beautiful elegance - aristocratic w hints of a nutty sweetness. Gentle and savory on the palate - good structure - good acid and tannins. Nutty and earthy and smooth.

Day 2: Lovely aged right bank Merlot nose - tertiary with that light marzipan and wild strawberry seeetness with soy and carob and maybe a bit of celery or tobacco. Palate is aristocratic and fine - nutty sweetness with carob and tobacco. Great balance. Finish is pure and fine carrying the wonderful flavors and genteel nature to the end. Nose - 5.5/6, Palate - 5-5.5/6, Finish - 5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 17-17.5/20. (12/2022)
