Cedar, herbs, currants and cigar wrapper create the core the wine. There is ample red fruits, round-textures and a sweet, blackberry and chewy currant finish with a savory edge that will be even better with a year or two of aging. Drink from 2024-2040.

Blackberries, currants and a touch of chocolate along with 5 spice get the wine going. Medium-bodied, packed with layers of ripe, chewy, red fruits and spice, the wine is energetic in the fruit filled finish. Give it a few years in the cellar and it should fill out quite nicely. Drink from 2024-2037.

With a peppery accent to the red fruited nose, the wine is medium/full-bodied, round, and with a gorgeous sweetness to the red fruits, hints of herbs, tobacco leaf, cigar box and cedar in the finish. Give it 3-5 years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 15 or more years with ease.

Light in color and in fruit, this early drinking, medium-bodied wine is on the bright, red fruit side. There are soft tannins along with crisp cherry and cranberry notes in the finish.

Dark red fruits are polished and blessed with length and voluptuous texture; this wine woos you with a finish of even deeper, earthier berries. A few years in the cellar will make this all the better -- a smart value play from St. Estephe.

More interesting on the spicy, peppery, bright, red berry and tobacco leaf nose, than on the slightly rustic, fresh, red fruit palate. Perhaps a few more years will add a bit of softness to the texture here.

Better on the earthy, smoky, spicy, red berry and tobacco nose, than on the slightly firm, rustic, cherry palate, this is fully developed and should be drunk up over the next few years.

Fully mature, medium-bodied and rustic in nature, the wine is more interesting on the tobacco, spice, wet earth, smoke and bright red berry nose than on the austere, earthy, cedar filled palate.

Probably drinking at its peak now. The nose, with its truffle, tobacco, blackberry and earthy scents are a little more interesting than the medium bodied, slightly rustic, finish.
