Chateau Simard Bordeaux Blend 1995
Seems to be ready to go

This is a decent Bordeaux that seems to be pretty much ready to go. I am not certain that a few more years will change the taste meaningfully, although I guess it could. Regardless, the wine needs to breathe for at least 1 hour to open up, perhaps even more. As a St. Emilion, it is more Merlot dominated than a left bank wine would be, and to me it is interesting to compare the two. The tannins in this wine are meaningfully less strong than they have been for some comparable (i.e., '95) left bank wines. This is not to say that they are absent or unpleasant. Quite the opposite -- the wine is nicely balanced, although I suspect it was not very that rich or full at any time. All in all, a decent bottle.
