Fresh, juicy, ripe red fruits with touches of coffee bean, wet earth and tobacco come to the nose easily. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with an earthy edge to the red fruits. The tannins are soft and there is ample freshness to provide good energy here. Give it 3-6 years in the bottle and this will be an even better wine. The wine blends 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. This is a solid value from the Margaux appellation.

Quite tasty with its soft, smooth textures, medium body and earthy, floral, black cherry and espresso tinged nose. For a Margaux of this quality, the wine sells for a very fair price. And with a few more years of age, this could be even better.

Silky, soft and serving up a delicious blend of ripe black cherries, flowers and wet earth with no hard edges. This is a great deal for a wine from the normally expensive Margaux appellation.
