(From 2009 Vintage) One of the best wines from this property, which established itself in the American marketplace 30 years ago, this blend of 58% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest the other two well-known varietals, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, is soft, round and generous, with loads of berry fruit, some licorice, roasted herbs and spice box.
DecanterRating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. This has a really lovely nose - oak and cigar box but very delicate, sweet and gentle. Tannins are sweet and very juicy. Delicious wine. Drink 2006 .
