Already showing some secondary characteristics with tobacco and cedar on top of the blackberry and cassis. Medium/full bodied, and with some rusticity in the crisp, bright, finish. The wine was made from a blend of 50% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc.

A nice value here with its fully mature tobacco, earthy, cassis, blackberry and cranberry profile. Medium bodied, traditional in style, with all the tannins resolved, time to drink up.

On the one hand, you have to respect any wine that is still offering even hints of life at 100 years of age, let alone a war years wine from a moderate terroir. But once past the romance, the pale red colored hue showcases a tart, cranberry-filled wine with more cedar, tobacco, and earth than tart, red fruits. Regardless, it was an honor drinking this bit of history.
