Description

Balanced and fruity with tobacco and berry character. Full and very soft with fine tannins, and a juicy fruit character on the finish. 90 points, James Suckling

Medium red-ruby. High-pitched aromas of licorice, bitter chocolate, wild herbs, spices and graphite minerality. Floral and juicy in the mouth, with excellent energy and definition to the flavors of red berries and cherry complicated by licorice and pepper. Perfumed, juicy, stylish claret with lovely fruit intensity and modest weight. Finishes with broad, palate-dusting tannins and a youthful tightness. Old school in the best way. 90 points, (ST) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

The 2008 d’Armailhac has a pretty, floral bouquet with red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit laced with rose petals. The palate is sweet on the entry, one of the relatively corpulent 2008 Bordeaux Left Bank wines, one that is finely balanced with a touch of cedar and spice decorating the understated, easy-going finish. Very fine. 90 points, (NM) Vinous

This is very black currant in character, with crisp fresh fruits to go with the bright acidity. There are tannins certainly, lightened by the fruity character of the wine. 90 points, (RV) Wine Enthusiast
