Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

A blend of 65% Cab Sauv, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Dark Ruby with ripe fruit aromas & herb notes. On the palate black cherry & blackberry, currant-like, with tobacco, cacao and smoky oak notes. Dusty fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit and earthy mineral tones, just starting to drink well but will last for then next decade+. Tasting Sample!

Frenchy delicious. Subtle and sublime. Black olive and berries on the nose. Deep black cherry with olive and lead pencil. Medium acidity and long finish. Silky tannins.

Deliciously ripe, young Bdx. Perhaps infanticide. But worth it for burgers and Bordeaux night.

Enjoyable and surprisingly accessible at this early stage.

Some complexity in this wine. Would buy again. Rich, bold more mouth feel

There’s is so much going on on the nose, spice, cloves, leather, cedar, sweet fruit... A lot more tame on the palate, with the more ‘conventional’ flavors of black fruit. All in all, very well done.

Ruby hue, pink rim variation. Nose offers black cherry, creme de cassis, plum sauce, anise, fennel seeds, molasses, nutmeg, vanilla, black licorice, wet earth, mushrooms, and leather notes. Nicely balanced on the palate with tart black fruit and soft tannins. Long finish. Vintage 2014. ABV 13.5%.
