Dark Ruby with rich black fruit aromas and spicy notes. On the palate ripe flavors of blackberry and black plum with notes of cacao and licorice. Well structured, fine tannins on long finish. Good now!

Dark Ruby with rich black fruit aromas and a spicy edge. On the palate ripe flavors of blackberry and black plum with notes of licorice. Well structured, still showing grippy tannins on long finish. Should keep developing for some time.

Inadvertently opened way too young by Noob. That being said it was a lovely wine that was robbed of its potential. great flavors and above average depth. Deductions for being robbed of what should have been a long life ahead.

Purebread not many blended wines come close to this left bank breed, though young this baby demonstrates the time proven blend of Cab and Merlot with the stability of Sauvignon Blanc and the spike of petit Verdot (too bad that Carmenere no longer prospers around the Gironde) Any other blend from anywhere should try to stand up next to these guys! god rest father Rmile Paunaud’s soul, what a legacy....
