Notes: It appears deep ruby/garnet with black core and good tears. On the nose it's clean med+ developing notes of leather, cigar box, cherries and black fruits, coffee and wet soil. Quite good complexity for the vintage, although oak elements are a bit too bossy. On the palate is dry, with med+ acidity, med+ alcohol, med+ tannins, medium body with medium flavor intensity. A bit green tannins on the Med+ finish.
Good quality, Drink Now or hold 10+ years, Premium Price. 80% Merlot 5% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Cabernet Franc, Saint Emilion, Bordeaux, France.
