My Rating 93 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Strong fruity nose with blackberries, cherries, sweet plums, raisins, licorice, cloves, chocolates, alcohol, peppercorn, spices and pencil lead.
Medium to full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate, and very fruity, with blackberries, sweet plums, raspberries, vanilla, licorice, coffee, tobacco, chocolates, oak, pencil lead, black tea, peppercorn and spices.
Long long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a wonderful Right Bank Bordeaux. Still very young and needs five to fifteen years too mature, but already drinking nicely. Almost balanced and very complex. Reminds me of a high quality California Cabernet.
Great for sipping by the porch or with food like BBQ Meats.
After a few hours in a decanter, it feels like a Californian Petite Sirah. Very interesting wine.
I wish I had another one to keep in the cellar.
A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Grapes are grown on limestone soils with a thin layer of clay at the top.
