Black ruby. Superripe, sexy aromas of blackberry pastille and blueberry. Creamy-sweet-verging-on-confectionery, but with harmonious acidity giving shape and energy to the wine's superconcentrated dark fruit and floral flavors. Best today on the broad, energetic finish, which features substantial ripe, fine-grained tannins and slowly mounting floral persistence. A knockout.
(a blend of 70% merlot, 25% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon) Bright ruby-red. Floral, scented aromas of cassis and chocolate. A supple, spicy midweight with flavors of raspberry, graphite and tobacco. On the soft side but juicy and delicious, finishing with a light dusting of tannins and decent length. This would have merited a higher score with a little more complexity. In fairness, some critics liked this wine a lot more than I did.
