Intense concentrated fruit with black currents, layers of chocolate, hints of licorice, anise, earth and leather,with a long,complex,andlingeringaftertaste. Powerfulnose and rich everlasting core of red and black fruits with well-incorporated tannins- though not overpowering-lead to an elegant and graceful gem. Although quite approachable, it will continue to age superbly over the next two decades. It is best to drink around 5 to 7 years from vintage date for added bottle bouquet & complexity, although it has also the potential to age well for over two decades.

Wine AdvocateDisplaying loads of complexity, this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc has a nose of bay leaf, black currants, cedar in a very perfumed, medium-bodied, quintessentially elegant style. It is not a far-fetched comparison to call this Napa Valley Cheval Blanc, although that wine is a nearly equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon rather than Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Dark plum/purple, pure, and close to full maturity, this wine should continue to age nicely for at least another decade or more.
