A 2700-case blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc cropped at a low 27 hectoliters per hectare (compare that with 39 hectoliters per hectare in 2009 and 31 in 2010) this superb claret was aged 18 months in 75% new... A 2700-case blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc cropped at a low 27 hectoliters per hectare (compare that with 39 hectoliters per hectare in 2009 and 31 in 2010) this superb claret was aged 18 months in 75% new French oak. Mulberry spring flower black cherry and raspberry characteristics as well as hints of spice and coffee emerge from this full-bodied opulent structured beauty. It should age effortlessly for 15-20 years.

Fleshy but pure and elegant with a gorgeous beam of raspberry ganache plum sauce and cherry preserve laced with subtle graphite spice and violet hints. The long finish is persistent but with some admirable power in reserve. Best from 2013 through 2020. 2700 cases made. -JM

Chocolate and berry and rich with gorgeous nose. Plums and berries. Full and super soft with a lovely velvety texture. Loads going on. Builds on the palate with a lovely depth of fruit and balance. A beauty.
