Wine Description

(2005 Vintage) Oak deepens what is otherwise a light and fresh claret. The tannins have a round stony minerality and the acidity gives a slight green edge to the fraise de bois flavor. To drink over the next several years with a duck confit salad. Wine and Spirits October 2008

    The usual blend of slightly harsh tasting unique to Saint Estephe region. Perfect casual drinking.
