Powerful and ripe. Dark black fruits, smoke and tobacco. Full bodied palate with medium tannins that make for an approachable wine.

We liked at the tasting and bought for dinner. Decanted for an hour. Big flavor profile. Coca-Cola meets fresh bing cherries.

This is excellent, one of the best Bordeaux I have tasted. Rich and dark purple in the glass, the nose reminds me of great Napa juice. Full of blackcurrant, cedar, leather and vanilla aromas. Palate is soft, rounded and just delicious with plenty of dark fruit, plum, tobacco and liquorice. The finish is long with some soft tannins and light acidity. I will go back tomorrow and pick up another couple of these, there is no better recommendation than that. If you love Napa Cabernet and modern style Bordeaux this is perfect.

Extremely bold after the Pinot. Possibly could do with a few more years.
