    ($30-$39) Full ruby-red. Aromas of blackcurrant, smoke and roasted, nutty oak. Concentrated and sweet but in the process of shutting down. Impressively dark, primary flavors of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate supported by sound acids. A rich but slightly medicinal wine that is no doubt better than it's showing today.

    58% Cab Sauvignon and 42% Merlot.Pretty unevolved crimson in hue though the rim is starting to fade. Hint of buckwheat on the nose. A little jagged next to the completeness of the Tour Haut-Brion. Bloody and quite dry and solid on the finish. The tannins are more rustic than the Tour Haut-Brion. Relatively light. Good balance.

    This continues to be one of the most seductive and luscious d'Armailhacs I have ever tasted. It may be my favorite vintage of d'Armailhac. Opaque purple-colored, this blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot has surprisingly good acidity with the high Merlot content and high tannin, but an expressive, opulent mid-texture and loads of charcoal-infused, cedary, black currant fruit intermixed with spice box, dried herbs, and espresso notes. The wine is full-bodied, sweet, and expansive.

    The Rothschilds of Mouton Rothschild own this property. Nicely colored with strong scents of animal, leathery spice, and tobacco to go along with surprisingly forward fruit. The wine remains quite forward in the palate with good acidity and light to moderate tannins. Overall, the wine presents as a bit too funky to be ideal.

This chateau has undergone so many name changes within the last few decades that it's amazing it knows who it is. Nevertheless, the wines from this chateau, one of three Pauillac estates owned by the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild (the others are Mouton-Rothschild and Clerc-Milon) provide steady, classic examples of Pauillac power and purity. The blend at this estate, from 50+ hectares of vines, favors Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and so produces a less muscular Bordeaux.
