Issue: Issue 120
($60; 16.5% alcohol) Good deep, bright ruby. Slightly porty aromas of black cherry and licorice. Huge, thick and superripe, with flavors verging on port-like. Conveys an impression of some residual sugar. Impressively rich wine with a big, chocolatey aftertaste.

From what appears to be a superb vintage, the 2002 Dixieme Recolte (a 250-case blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc) offers a dense, ripe, chewy, tobacco leaf and licorice-infused, black fruit-dominated personality. Full-bodied, generously rich and multi-textured, it is best drunk over the next 10-12 years.
