My first time experiencing this wine and what a fantastic display of Bordeaux. Decanted four hours and drank over the next 4+. 50% Cab Franc and 50% Merlot and oh so sexy. Something about the blend that emits this fragrance that is very alluring...sandalwood and black currant come to mind. On the front of the palate gives a hint of BBQ smoke and cocoa with those flavors carrying through to reveal a sweet side. Finish that goes for well over a minute. After the 7th hour the wine had faded and closed.

On any normal night this shows very well. Just not on a night where it's paired against 90 la Conseillante.

Great color with mature merlot notes of dried fruits, dried herbs and tobacco. Nothing funky or damp but clean and pure.
