This is a very good to excellent, fruit-forward Bordeaux. Lite tannins with a bit of pepper. Should last for several years and maybe improve a bit. It also has an unmistakable odor and taste of new leather, which may turn some people off. I happen to like it, but highly recommend that the wine be double-decanted and aired a couple hours before first pour. I would rate it 90-91. 93 seems a bit high IMHO.
