James Suckling Review
Very attractive aromas of blackcurrants, black olives and dark leather with some cedar. It's full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a refined, polished finish. Shows finesse and focus. Grows on the palate. Really delicious now, but will improve with age. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
This vintage is a full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Aromas of cassis, plum and star anise complemented by cigar box and cocoa powder overtones. A rich, full entry on the palate gives way to savory dark fruit, rustic tannins and a lingering finish.
