The wine is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Drink from 2026-2050.

Medium-bodied, leaning to light, with its focus firmly in the bright, crisp and crunchy, red berry style, this classic wine should drink well young.

Light in color, medium bodied, pleasant, easy to taste, with a red berry character that is made more interesting with the tobacco and wet earth notes. This is not a wine for further aging. Drink up.

Fully mature, rustic, medium bodied, old school style of Bordeaux, with a crisp, bright, red berry and herb character. The nose, with its tobacco and earthy accents is more satisfying than the palate.
