This is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot, so it’s a bit of Right Bank Left Bank and something in the middle perhaps. Aromas of leafy minerally blackcurrant with a tobacco leaf black olive nuance provide an engaging first encounter. The vintage is captured by the firm and tight control on the palate, yet there is ample flesh and fruit emerging from a shy vintage to provide the balance and poise for current drinking. A beautifully crafted wine with a long firm cabernet dominant finish.
