Moderately saturated ruby-red. Slightly medicinal, spicy aromas of cherry, licorice and currant leaf. Rather backward and a bit tough in the mouth, with black fruit, plum and violet notes and modest sweetness. Finishes with very firm tannins.

Refined and silky. Spice and cedar, with hints of meat and berries. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Better than from barrel. Best after 2008. 13,330 cases made.

Very nice nose that could be nothing other than Bordeaux. Not a profound wine, but very solid, especially for the price. No rush on this one. It still has some in reserve.

Ph?lan S?gur deserves more notoriety than it currently commands. Raised in 50% new oak for 16 months, the wine?s blend consists of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 5% Franc. Tons of spice and sweet plum on the nose. Very smooth and supple with intense aromas of dark chocolate, tar, and deep dark fruits.
