(69% cabernet sauvignon and 31% merlot; fermented with wild yeasts and aged for 30 months in 60% new oak): Medium red. Redcurrant, cherry, menthol and a whiff of flowers on the nose. Suave and supple but subdued, with terrific intensity to the red fruit and floral flavors. This sexy, Bordeaux-like wine is most impressive today on the long, building finish, which showcases the sweet merlot influence. Billo Naravane told me he would normally decant this wine for 24 to 36 hours (!) before serving it.
