A very clean, easy drinking Bordeaux blend, showing off character from PR's estate vineyards. Merlot and Cab Franc are in the forefront here, with juicy red fruits dominating the palate. Earthy minerals and hints of tobacco and spice on the back end. Smooth as silk now, but built on a frame that should allow it to develop the complexity and sense of place inferred from the price point. Needs time to get there.
