Drank 10/8/18. Nice pairing with lamb chops.

Fairly classic nose of red fruit, currants, earth, and a touch of spice. The palate lacks some depth, but red and black fruits are present, and backed by medium tannins. Medium finish. Drink up, I don't see this improving much.

3/20/7/4/3 + 50 = 87 pts

Just ok, a simple Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon based wine. Dark red with jammy fruit aromas, slight spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry fruit, some sweetness, with firm tannins ok balance, medium finish ending with spice notes. Drink now. Tasting Sample.

Really nice wine. Beautiful oak notes. Somewhat delicate at 12.5% abv. If you are used to American juice bombs, this isn't the wine for you.

From the same producer as Ch. Landat and Lamothe-Cissac. More forward and polished than Landat, more red fruit with appealing oak aromatics.
