Love the nose to this wine, with spices and berries and currants. Full and very refined with super silky tannins and a long long finish. So refined. Second wine of Cos.

A bright floral edge chimes in on the long finish. An impressive second wine. A little more Merlot than usual (62 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 38 percent Merlot). Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

Picked between 27th September and 10th October, the Pagodes is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot delivering 14.13% alcohol with a pH of 3.51. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the nose with blackberry, pencil shavings, a touch of plum and fine mineralité. The palate has great tension on the entry with a citric freshness, very good weight and yet it glides through to a harmonious finish. This is a lovely Pagodes. Drink 2012-

Forty-five percent of the production made it into this blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot that achieved 14.1% alcohol naturally. Plump and fat with an abundant concentration of black fruits as well as outstanding intensity, purity and texture, this beauty should drink well for 10-15 years.

In the mouth, the wine is tannic, fresh and filled with dark berries. Prats called this vintage a severe style of Pagodes that requires time.

Average yield is 38 hl/hectare and alcohol is 14.13%. Modern and clean, the nose reveals creamy blackberry and blue fruits, graphite, spring flowers and a touch of sauvage. Lots of minerality here with a nice attack of plus concentration of brambly blackberry that peaks to a crescendo of black raspberry on the tight and focused mid-palate. One of the better second wines of the vintage.
