Well, this was disappointing. Sometimes Bordeaux's can go thru a dumb phase and sometimes that is just an excuse. Watched over a couple of days with no improvement. It wasn't bad, it just was... there. And for this kind of money, that isn't really good enough. Purple in color. The nose has cherrie, dust and cedar. On the palate, cherries. Not much depth or complexity. Its fine. Nothing more. Solid B. I hope it improves or perhaps just an off bottle. Or not.
