Château Hourbanon 2003, Ac Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

Bordeaux-Left Bank

$21.95 at LCBO
Very elegant aged Bordeaux. A pleasure to drink.
 Garnet in the glass,dark red core with brownish rim.
Beautiful, deep nose offers notes of cassis,  dried fruit, leather, black pepper.
The palate is dry, medium bodied with a firm structure from very balanced tannins and fresh acidity. Flavors of the  nose replaying on the palate dark berries, dried cherries, herbal notes, berry pie.
The finish is lovely and long.  exciting because of its age.
