Well made, but a tad too rich and "international." Missing last week's Montus.

Big and meaty. The merlot saves it from being too ripe and tannic. Brett showed up a bit on day 2.

Earthy with stewed black and red fruits. Soft, resolved tannins, and nice balance.

Wine dinner with wine maker Fabrice Dubosc. Very good friendly wines. We had scallops, Duck L’orange, Lamb Wellington, and Short Rib with truffled wild mushroom orzo Mac with 3 white cheeses.

Lively finish. Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh appellation as it best. 14% combining petit courbu and petit manseng grapes.

Dissapointingly strong tanins for 8 year old Cabernet. Interesting earthy flavors and a hint of licorice. Would be better as a pairing with spicy dinner than sipping in the late evening.
