If this was a $50 Bordeaux, I might not rank it quite so high, but for around $15, this is a very good 9 yr old Bordeaux. I find the tannins to be quite soft, and I doubt they could soften much more. Having said that, I think this wine is ready to drink now and has likely reached its prime. For the price, I will definitely buy some more and share it with friends. 2000 was not a bad year, and this wine will not disappoint.

Complex and velvety with strong but manageable tannins. Definitely benefits from decanting a couple of hours before drinking.
