2005. With some air and time it opens up and the oak and Cabernet Franc mellows. The Merlot is great in the drivers seat. Great at dinner for the price and to pair with a few different dishes. Very nice, approachable wine.

The tannins are still unresolved but this drinks well now and has a long life ahead. Lots of energy mid-palate.

Mostly used by my wife in beef stew but saved a glass to try with the meal. Big leather, tobacco, shaved pencils and dried cherry on the palate. Had a good 3+ hours to breathe and fruit was there but not as much as I would like.

No oak. Good acidity. Needs time.
