Perfect fill and pristine cork. Very dark in colour. Plums and cassis on the nose with the usual cigar box and cedar. Initially quite short, even thin, but it just needed time to reveal a typically Pauillac, deep mouthful of blackcurrant and blackberry, with a good second wave of plums, before quite a persistent finish. If the finish was more profound, this would be outstanding but it's still the best Armailhac I've tasted.
