A five now!

After six months, I'm having another of these just because it is luscious - and, wow, is it ever! Lots of cassis, black fruits, cedar, vanillin oak and a touch of tobacco leaf on the nose. Plenty of rich fruit on the palate and a long smooth finish with good acid balance and well integrated fine tannins. Plenty powerful, but also suave and elegant. Tremendous balance here, which makes it five stars.

Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
