via Instagram A Tale of Two Châteaus … it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. Cheers @winedog64–the odd couple strikes again!
Chateau Smith – a hot WA vintage, royal purple and all rich black fruit with minimal new oak, tobacco leaf, earthy espresso and fine tannic finish; such a great Northwest QPR; ready to drink or age 5-7 years.
Château Cantemerle – an authentic 1855 Grand Cru Classe, dark royal purple-ruby, with loads of juicy cherry and raspberry fruit. Subtle licorice, peppery spices, vanilla oak and fresh florals. Superb length; could rest easily another 20 years in cellar.
