Flamboyant and deep, with ample, lush, and fresh forest fruits, bramble, and cassis, with cascading sweet spice swiftly following. A super, brooding wine that will shine brighter with time. Platinum Medal
What We Thought: This incredibly approachable "Right Bank" blend has a nose of bramble and cassis and a medium-to-full-bodied palate filled with ripe, soft blackberry fruit and light notes of dark chocolate finishing with firm but supple tannins that promise future improvement in the cellar. A blend of 87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.
