Cos d'Estournel Bordeaux Blend 1997

I realize that there are a of doubts about '97 Bordeaux. So far, I have had no problems (this is second or third wine of the vintage I have had). The bottle is a classic Cos in many ways. The tannins are present, but very well-balanced and in check. The wine has taste and some depth, but it is not fruity by any stretch of the imagination. We let this sit for about 90 minutes before we drank it over the course of a prime rib dinner. It opened up (or evolved because it was fine at first) over the course of the meal. I will let the next one sit for 3 hours or so just to see the difference. Very pleasant.

There a dark red to this wine. it is medium bodied It is also sweet but has a lot of depth to it.

Here are aromas I could smell sweet Currants, pepper, Cherrie.

A very pleasant wine.
