Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 85-89

(60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 10% cabernet franc) Moderately saturated medium ruby. Cassis, blackberry, chocolate and licorice on the nose. Then sweet, smooth and pliant in the mouth, with a lovely lush texture firmed by harmonious acidity. Expands nicely on the back half, finishing with late-hitting tannins. (A first sample showed distinct herbaceousness on the nose but a satisfying, surprisingly fat texture.) Other Promising Wines of the Medoc

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
