The Annual Red Bordeaux Report (May 2005)

Medium red. Aromas of roasted plum, redcurrant, minerals, leather, game and pepper. Supple on entry, then juicy and tightly wound in the middle, with greener flavors than the 2003 or 2004: fresh herbs, black olive, green pepper, tobacco leaf, leather and game. Offers good lift in the middle, and finishes firmly tannic and lively, with the somewhat wild leather and game notes continuing.
