Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Deliciously fruity, with chocolate notes and acidity. The wine has dense but soft tannins that merge seamlessly into the black fruits. It is ripe, sweet, densely juicy.

Winemaker's Notes

Looking for a great deal in Bordeaux? Look no farther - this has got to be one of the steals of the century. Dark and rich, just starting to drink beautifully, try a glass of this nectar with grilled mushrooms and medium rare steak. "Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, violets and currants lead to this full-bodied wine with velvety tannins. Lovely finish delivers a juicy berry aftertaste. One of the best buys of the vintage."Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2002
