Barrel Sample Impressive; the tannins maybe too overwhelming. Look instead for the black plums the spice and the structure. Needs to come into balance.

This property is finally hitting on full cylinders and has returned to the form it had in the late 1970s and mid-1980s. This is a deep ruby/purple-colored wine with notes of graphite menthol licorice and truffle. The fruit character verges between black cherry and creme de cassis notes. The wine exhibits noble and complex aromatics moderately high tannins but a full-bodied firm muscular structure that will require some patience. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.

Sexy aromas of roasted raspberry plum liqueur coffee smoke mocha and chocolate. Enticing and exotic Pomerol with lush flavors of roasted plum and musky coffee leavened by a medicinal reserve. In spite of its enticing sweetness and fullness this is rather backward today with the dusty substantial tannins calling for at least a few years of patience. But the wine's firm backbone and excellent breadth and length suggest it should age well.
