Medium-bodied, earthy, savory, with red fruits, herbs and olives on the nose and palate. The finish shows a lot of oak at the moment, so it is going to take at least a few years to come together. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. 87-89 Pts

The wine has gained a bit of concentration over the past year so that now, the black cherries and licorice come through loud and clear. Forward, early drinking and charming, this is a fine Bordeaux value wine.

Medium bodied, fruity, soft textured, ripe, black cherry, espresso and licorice accents and a round, fruit filled finish. The wine was made from a blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is perfect for current, near term drinking.

From a blend of 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, this already delicious wine is filled with licorice, jam and soft textured red and black fruits. This should deliver pleasure on release.
