    ($59-$90; 70% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon) Good full red. Expressive aromas of mocha, game, tobacco and smoke. Moderately sweet and dense, with a supple texture for the year. And yet the wine's underlying minerality gives it a firmness and contributes to the impression of vinosity. Finishes with excellent length and no dryness. I'd give this three to five years of aging before pulling the cork.

    A terrific effort, this classic blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as a complex bouquet of cedar, spice box, black cherries, and cassis. With impressive purity, medium body, moderate tannin, and a long finish (40 plus seconds).

    Aromas of sweet plums and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm tannins and a solid core of fruit. This is very tightly knit and needs to unravel with bottle age. Turns big and chewy with air. This has excellent potential.

    Slightly cheesy/goaty on the nose. Then taut and pretty drying tannins. Not a comfortable wine to drink at the moment! Perhaps it will mellow...? Drying finish.ÿ

    Medium+ body, lots fruit here, red currant, strawberry, blackberry jam, slightly funky. Great complexity and balance. A very good Pomerol for the vintage, mild tannin and enough acidity to make this wine enjoyable for the next 15 years. Medium length.
