This wine has not evolved as well as I originally predicted. It displays a deep ruby color, and aromas of roasted herbs, sweet vanillin, earth, and black cherries. In the mouth, the wine is big boned, but I am not sure it has the requisite sweetness and ripeness of fruit to stand up to the boat-load of tannin as well as the wine's structure. Nevertheless, this is a youthful, promising, but slightly more attenuated La Lagune than I would have predicted. The wine's clean but tannic finish suggests another two decades of longevity. The question is, will it reach a perfect marriage among all its component parts?

Plenty of pretty wood dominates this Bordeaux, with sweet vanilla, cedar and smoky oak that overshadows the ripe fruit. With time it should be more complex.
