Wine Description

Medium bright ruby. Compellingly perfumed nose of boysenberry, cassis, graphite, licorice and violet. Suave on entry, then imploded in the middle and extremely slow to show itself. Very pure, understated black fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors are like an essence of cabernet. Savory rather than particularly sweet: there's nothing easy or obvious about this wine today. A dry and classic style; the tannins are tight for a young Margaux but not hard, and the finishing flavors are vibrant and perfumed.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Bright ruby-red. Blueberry, boysenberry and violet on the pure nose. Lively and minerally on entry, then really expands in the middle palate to show terrific density with any loss of clarity. Wonderfu...

    Plummy and earthy with hints of spiced orange rind, reminiscent of christmas fruit puddings. A complex aroma follows through to palate. Full and rich with smooth firm tannins and a long lingering finish.
