Big fruity nose
Thinner on the palate, lacking depth
Unfortunately, there was nothing exciting about this wine. I was hoping it had a little something extra, but it seemed kind of predictable and boring. The up-front bouquet of fruit was the highlight.
For me, spending $16 on a Bordeaux from Graves is a reasonable gamble. This wine may develop further with even more bottle aging; only time will tell. See also PB's tasting notes on this wine posted Monday, February 20, 2006. Raise a glass!
