This is truly an interesting wine in that it is (relatively) inexpensive and a good way to get a sense of whether one likes a Bordeaux with some age on it or not. I've enjoyed several bottles of this over the last month and a half or so and truly proves the old adage "there are no great wines; only great bottles of wine." I'm scoring it on an average- it's consistently a darkish brick color when decanted, has a full aroma, an enticing yet grippy flavor. I've had one bottle that didn't mature properly (I thought it was well thinner and less flavorful than the others). Would recommend this as an easy way to get a sense of what Bordeaux becomes over a decade or so (though don't fool yourself into thinking it's the same as drinking a 10 or 20 year old great growth).
