Tasting Notes

Good dark red. Soil-driven aromas of underbrush, mocha and spicy herbs. Sweet, rich, lush and fine-grained, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the flavors of dark berries and menthol. In a distinctly supple style for young Bonnes-Mares but the long, juicy finish shows very good lift. Tannins are dusty and serious. Stephen Tanzer
