This wine has an attractive deep color, the sign of a wine that is rich in phenolic compounds. On the nose, there are massive amounts of fruit aromas intermixed with very subtle spicy aromas, the sign of perfectly ripe grapes. The attack is silky and round, developing density but remaining fresh. Concentrated fruity flavors come through with lovely ripe tannins, providing good body on the mid-palate. The whole is both rich and silky; the length of flavors is amazing, leaving a finish packed with flavor, which is not at all drying. The ageing in barrel should provide extra aromatic complexity and roundness. The aim is to preserve the balance, freshness and juicy crispness of this wine.

Wine AdvocateThis St.-Estephe blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon displays a chunky, chocolaty character with black currant fruit. It has serious substance, a fleshy mouthfeel and a decent finish. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
