Lovely fruit and berry character with hints of citrus fruit and a clean and bright finish.

This large estate of 50 acres situated on clay sand and gravelly soils has produced a 2010 offering beautiful licorice black cherry plum and Asian spice notes in an elegant medium-bodied style. A blend of 80% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon it can be enjoyed during its first 7-8 years of life.

Delivers a beam of dark cherry raspberry and ganache notes with a twinge of tobacco on the finish. Sports some punch but the length is there for this to settle in. -J.M.

Aged in French oak for 24 months. Black cherry and spice show nicely on the nose with licorice and black olive on the back note of the aromatics. Entry is sleek with a spray of mineral and seashell along with generous cassis and herbes de Provence. The linear tannins are firm and the new oak appears balanced and just right on the finish. With its structure this will be long lived for the category. Drink 2017-2025.
