This wine is an adolescent, creeping on young adult. Still young, but after 30-45 minutes in the decanter, it drank amazingly well. Barnyard on the nose with hints of cinnamon and some eucalyptus. On the palate it had crushed rocks and minerality with plenty of fruit and a LONG finish. Enjoyed with some lamb kebab, this wine freakin rocks. Even in not so perfect vintages, Margaux makes rockin' wines.
