Tasting notes and characteristics:
The attractiveness in this bottle comes from its balance. Deep red in color, the wine is a blend of 65 percent Merlot, 25 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10 percent Cabernet Franc. The nose is 100 percent Bordeaux, showing dusty fruit, minerals and oak in the background. The first sips are typically dry, but the tannins, softened by the use of conditioned oak (code for barrels used in previous vintages), do not grab your tongue and squeeze in the fashion a young Bordeaux tends to behave. Red and black currant flavors intertwine with dry cherry nuances to happily fill the space between the chalk dry mouth entry and the pleasing spiced finish. All is knit together with a confident hand by a mature acid level. Although it is enjoyable right off the shelf, this wine is worthy of cellaring a few bottles for three to five years.
