2008 Beaumont, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)
According to Stephen Tanzer: "Medium red. Effusively fruity nose redolent of ripe strawberry and spicecake. Ripe and soft on entry, but with plenty of acidity to frame and lift the ripe red fruit flavors. Finishes a tad warm but with smooth tannins and a late spicy kick. A highly enjoyable wine that should be very easy to drink." From Robert Parker: "...This is a pleasant, picnic-styled effort." (04/09) According to Decanter: "Young ruby, attractive red fruits, smooth, supple fruit, quite forward. Drink 2012." And from Wine Spectator: "A plush texture carries straightforward black cherry, tobacco and herb flavors, with moderate tannins and acidity. Slightly loose and rustic in texture, this is still juicy and fresh. Drink now through 2015."
