Saint Estephe Cos D'Estournel 2004

A bordeaux instead of my steady diet of Shiraz!

Got a nice price on a couple bottles from a friend and decided to open one right away to enjoy along with an '01 SIG V.

Goodness the wine and the cigar match up so nicely. The nose on this bottle is all currants. This has got legs. Smooth with some acidity. I really like this one. :-P

Frankly not something I can afford to drink regularly. But occasionally would be a joy.

:hungry:

Provenence?

Costco.... in the original case, apparently stored horizontally. I drank a bottle last night, (figured I'd try one before going for the rest...) still much too young, strong tannins and almost acidic? short finish. Probably needs several more years. They also had some 2004 Dominus for $80... I plan to go back for some of that, maybe put up a couple of the D'Estournel for long term.

Holy crap! Dominus for $80 is a steal. It's normally on sale for about $40 more than that. I just wish I had a Costco closer to me!

:lol:

WooHoo! I was able to score 3 more bottles of this at slightly less than what I originally paid!

I was also able to grab a few Far Niente 2005 cabs and a couple Sequoia Grove Reserve Cabs to go along. Both at good prices for me.
