Probably a sleeper of the vintage the medium to full-bodied pure 2008 reveals notes of almond paste intermixed with black currants sweet cherries caramel and mocha as well as an attractive texture and density. Consume it over the next decade.

With its solid dark tannins wound around ripe black stone fruits the wine shows an almost sweet character in its richness. The classic acidity of the year powers through the tannins and the fruit giving greater complexity. R.V.

From a 20 acre vineyard planted to 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc on 2/3 gravelly/clay soil and 1/3 clay/silt soil. A very aromatic nose revealing attractive notes of raspberry dark earth smoke and tree bark. With a smooth and sweet entry this has a great presence of fruit on the palate and superb balance. Quite rich with good weight length and complexity there is a bit of chocolate and oak on the finish.

On the nose classic Bordeaux aromas emerge displaying cinnamon cedar strawberry and coffee. Very structured the wine is balanced with bright acidity and chalky tannins while red and black fruit dominate the palate leading to the finish that is long and clean. Decant this lovely wine for several hours if consuming now or wait a few years and enjoy from 2014-2030+.
