($100; Seillan's Pauillac blend, with 71% cabernet sauvignon, 19% merlot, 8% cabernet franc and 2% malbec) Medium ruby. Cool, somewhat medicinal aromas of blackcurrant, bitter chocolate, licorice, minerals and fresh herbs. Bright and dense but quite closed and tannic today; very much in the style of a Northern Medoc wine. Distinctly tough now and in need of at least five or six years of patience. This was far silkier from barrel a year ago, but my early sample contained a much higher percentage of merlot.
