SKU 500


The color is dark ruby, while the aroma has a rich tone of mocha, cedar, blackberries, black pepper and plums as nose opens up. On the palate, mocha, chocolate, espresso and ripe raspberries. Lots of layers with sweet integrated tannins, great texture, again black fruit with crushed rocks and silky finish. The finish is long and lingering aftertaste that lasts several minutes. Will improve for 12-15 years and hold there for 10 more.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Right Bank (55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc) is slightly shorter and not as concentrated as the 2007. The lightest of the three vintages, the 2008 is a full-bodied effort displaying lots of cassis, bay leaf, charcoal, and subtle smoke. Expect it to drink well for 15 or so years.

VinousThe 2008 Right Bank comes across as a bit rustic and fleeting. The lack of mid-palate presence exposes angular contours in the wine. Pretty notes of dark red fruits, herbs and tobacco emerge on the finish, but there isn't enough fruit to balance the structural components.
