    "Wow" and "Huge" are the two words I wrote for this wine. This was a really beautiful wine with rich dark cassis, black fruit, spice and graphite aromas and flavors. The rich fruit provides a great balance to the grippy tannins. Very nice wine and in comparision to 2009 and 2010 pricing you could almost buy 2.

    Worth every dollar and it deserves every high rating that it has been receiving. Dense and full, with blackberry and blueberry fruit. Pencil lead (as usual) on the nose with minerality and smoke. It is a joy on the palate with currant and blueberry fruit. Amazingly supple tannins. A cellar pick and I am giving it a Best Buy as it will age for 25 years plus and costs under $100.00.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2040

    My advice? If you have a few extra Benjamins lining your well-oiled wallet and are of the mind to buy a beautiful bottle or two of Bordeaux that will, when it eventually reaches full maturity around the time your same vintage 2008 son/daughter celebrate their 21st birthday (and will generously share it with you), then this is the wine for you! A superbly structured, absolutely pitch-perfect Pauillac, reflecting the august gravel and limestone terroir from which it was born.
    Drink from 2020 to 2035
