Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Blueberry and blackberry, with hints of sliced mushrooms. Full body, with velvety tannins and a soft textured finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Plump, tender texture carries lively fruit flavors of wild cherry, strawberry and cassis in this lively red. Notes of fresh herb and licorice add interest. Modestly structured, with fresh acidity and just enough tannins.

  • Wine & Spirits
    Good medium ruby-red. Slightly medicinal aromas of blueberry, dark chocolate and game, with a liqueur-like exotic quality. Tightly wound and penetrating; in a rather brutal stage today, and not showing the lushness or sweetness of the vintage. Finishes firmly tannic, with a note of licorice.
  • Decanter
    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Classic cassis/cedar Medoc bouquet, quite dry and restrained. Fine fruit and good elegant wine, shows elegance, depth and finesse. Drink 2-10 years.
