Plummy, silky, fresh, medium-bodied and already focusing on its core of chocolate-covered plums, licorice and espresso. You should be able to enjoy this on with just a year or two of age. 89-91 Pts

Spicy black raspberries, incense and floral scents can be found with ease. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, bright and focused on its sweet cherries, citrus and thyme. There is a hint of cocoa in the easy to like finish. Made from a blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, the wine reached 13.5% ABV. The frost damaged close to 60% of the harvest.

Sweet, fresh, ripe, elegant plums, licorice, cherry and cocoa are on the nose and palate. The wine is medium bodied, silky and very soft, finishing juicy, sweet plums. Give this 2-3 more years in the cellar. This is clearly the best vintage I've tasted from L'Enclos yet.

Already showing bricking in the color, the secondary notes of truffle, licorice, smoke and earth dominate the nose. Soft and round on the palate, this is at the peak of maturity. Drink this over the next 3-5 years before the fruit begins to fade.

Fully mature, with no effort you find the wet earth and red fruity aromas. The wine is soft, light, elegant and will be best consumed over the next few years, allowing you to enjoy the freshness in the cherries, before they fade to more secondary characteristics.
