Firm and very Bordeaux-like with its tight band of cedar-laced currant, herb, dried berry and mineral notes. Full-bodied and well-proportioned, this is somewhat simpler on the finish.

Their famous cuvee, which was once named Wine Spectator Wine of the Year, the 2007 Cinq Cepages is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage. Hints of bay leaf, black currant, sweet cherry, cedar and subtle smoke are all present in this lush, medium to full-bodied, opulent and heady wine. Broad and savory, it seems to be on a fast evolutionary track and should be drunk over the next decade.
