In such a beautiful spot. Oak vanillin still present, tannins smooth and pleasant. Delicious ripe dark fruit.

Wonderfully balanced with an appealing cassis, blackberry, loam, cedarwood character. Very persistent on the palate. Long finish. From magnum. Young approachable now, but would love to revisit in 5 years! 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc; 13% alcohol

Decant for 6 hours. Luscious, fresh and long lived. Next one open in about 6 years.

Bottle variation for ‘10 vintage of late but this one in point. Beautiful match with seared NY Strips.

Absolutely beautiful--showing perfectly for us right now. Nose gives me blackberries and fresh-from-the-oven brownies. The palate is supple and perfectly balanced amongst fruit, tannins and acidity, showing dark fruit flavors, a bit of earthiness, and a long, lingering finish.

I loved this. Blackberry, tobacco and minerals came in waves. The finish was long and complex. Nice earthy tannins. This goes so well with food.
