(From 2011 Vintage) It possesses a deep ruby/purple color along with notes of cranberry sauce, black cherries, black currants, dusty, loamy soil, unsmoked cigar tobacco and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied and rich with light tannins as well as a textured mouthfeel.
Nice five grape blend, mainly Cab. Blueberry, lavender, cocoa, with a touch of flinty minerals. Proper and under control. More competent than exciting, but surely a tasty effort that I enjoyed to the last drop.
So good! This wine is bold and complex. It reminds me of Vieux Chateau de Roi.
Had on New Year's Eve 2014 at Shango with Camille and Steve
