Christian with Terra Firma

Chateau Haut Mouleyre Blanc 2006... lemon yellow.. nice viscosity but the flavors have started going.. some honey notes but generally beginning to dull.

Chateau Fombrauge St Emilion Grand Cru 2003 pretty cedar on the nose..drinking like an aged bordeaux would.. a bit rough on the palate.. good for a $20 bottle but not the $40 I would have to charge.. holding its color well.
Chateau LaTour  Carnet Haut Medoc 2003 the glass looks muddled.. and a little oxidized on the nose.. still showing good fruit.. but this bottle at least is over the hill.

l'egregore bordeaux 2004  100% merlot.. dark garnet.. with edges of brown.. french stink intensified.. some mocha on the finish..

Bernard Magrez Napa Cabernet 2007.  dark fruit on the palate.. interestting combination of old and new world noses. dark fruits.. lots of tannin that would hopefully settle down..  tea and cola on the finish.. tannins.
