Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
91 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2008
($45; a blend of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 15% malbec, 10% cab franc and 5% each petit verdot and merlot) Good deep ruby-red. Complex aromas of plum syrup, cherry, mocha, tobacco leaf and mint. Silky, pliant and quite dry, offering a smooth texture allied to firm supporting backbone. The enticing red fruit, mint and dusty mineral flavors convey a strong sense of soil. Finishes fine-grained and classically dry, with lingering aromatic persistence and very suave tannins. An enticing, scented blend.
