When we went out to dinner I'll be honest I didn't want any
wine. But my wife talked me into it she said "A nice glass of wine well do
good for your nerves." She was right it did. This wine was very light and
it hit the spot. This wine is very good. It has a medium body to it and it is
very ripe tasting.
It was about 2pm on a Saturday and the phone rang. It was my
daughter. She called to see what we where up to and to see if we would join her
for dinner and some wine. I told her "sure what time is dinner?" She
Said "About 6pm." I said "I'll see you then." The day went
by quick and finally it was time to go to dinner.
We had dinner and she brought out some wine.
It was a bottle of 1995 Leoville Poyferre Bordeauxe. She poured it in our
glasses and I could not help but notice the color was a nice purple. Also so I
couldn't help but notice the smells of berries, and currants. I also couldn't
help but notice the flavors of cassis and berries.
So I guess in summery this is a wine that you will notice.
2002 - Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Carruades de Lafite Bordeaux Blend
Sep 11, 2007
This was odd. My wife poured me a glass of this wine at
dinner the other night. I took a sip and told her "You know I don't like the
2001. Why did you pour me a glass of it?" She said "I didn't this is
the 2002." I said "No I think you grabbed the wrong bottle." She said.
"No I did not. Here look!" I grabbed the bottle and looked at it and
sure enough it was the 2002. Boy to me this was just as bad as the
My wife and I are not wine critics but we both like wine.
She really enjoyed this wine. I thought it was just ok. It had a nice full body
that I liked. The Aromas where ok Spicy, Oaky, Honey, Citrus, Flowers and
My friend like this wine allot. I mean a hole lot. So I
thought I would try it and you know what he was right. This is a nice wine with
deep, Dark black and purple color. Scents of, smoke, black fruits,
minerals. It is a powerful wine with a medium body.
