Still can benefit from time in the bottle. Dark berry and plum fruit. Earth and chalk tones. Medium to -full-bodied. Tannins still noticeable but integrating well. Decent length to the finish.

1 bottle owned and now tasted. Ruby red color with classic Bordeaux aroma of dried fruit and rich soil. Medium body with very smooth and integrated tannins, dried black cherries and leather. Medium body with elegance and smoothness that lingers on the tongue. Slightly austere but a classic St. Estephe. Will keep or enjoy now.

Garnet red in colour - Nice aromatics and ripe and solid on palate but a touch 4 sq - Not sure this has much of a future

Deep color, wonderful notes of fruit, tar, licorice, a little oak. Great balance -- plenty of tannins, but plenty of fruit. Jennifer said it tasted "chemically" ... a reaction, no doubt, to the combination of oak and terroir. Yet another great Cos ...

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
