Massively structured and tannic with beautiful fruit core. Shows off the more red fruited side of Cabernet with its jolly rancher mixed with ripe roasted red bell pepper sweetness. Amazing while still quite young. Decanted 2 hours before our arrival to the Chateau.

Great now, but will last ages. Concentrated fruit, firm tannins. Cedar and lead.

Takes a good 30-45min to open up but once it did this offered layers of fruit and earth and a nice lingering finish.

Good balance of fruit, dry leather, and oak. Opened up after about 1.5 hours and paired well with green beans and filet.
