Another slowly developing 2000 Bordeaux. Deep ruby in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, cigar box, leather and spice. Full bodied. Light to medium tannins. On the palate, black cherries and cassis with some leathery notes and underlying forest floor. Nice complexity. Good finish. Drink over the next five to seven years. Better with food, this would work nicely with Beef Wellington.
