Review a new wine!
  2000 - St Andre Corbin St George

 Time. time, time. Opened this bottle a year or two after trying the others. Much better. It is not a classified growth, but it is a very pleasant bottle. It seems that the flavors have knit (or are knitting) together. A real testimony to the strength of the vintage. I have 2 more -- one in a year from now, and the other in two years.

 A classic Bordeaux, albeit a second wine. Took a little while to open up (at least an hour). Tannins and fruit well-integrated, nose not particularly pronounced, but not absent either. Finish reasonable, although not overly long. This bottle really shined with roast beef or lamb (happened to have some of each on hand). I am not certain how much this bottle will change or develop over time. I have 5 left, and I will try one in 6 months or so. I suspect the tannins will soften a bit over a few years. After all, it is only 6 years old, which is not all that much for a decent claret.
