Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored Bordeaux opens with an attractive mild blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, and very approachable. The flavor profile is a very tasty blueberry with notes of integrated mild oak and gentle blackberry. The finish is dry and its well managed tannins are nicely prolonged and friendly. This wine is very food friendly and would be perfect with a filet mignon in the near term. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Impressive, highly concentrated bright ruby colour with hints of purple and crimson. The nose is intense, developing aromas of blackcurrants, plums, spices and a superb deep, dense fruitiness. After a dense attack, the palate offers fine tannins, with great depth, perfect harmony, and excellent balance. Very fruity, the mid-palate is both rich and fresh, developing superb structure with complex flavours of dark fruit, tobacco, spices and an exquisite finish with just a hint of leather. Exceptional potential, already offering a magnificent expression of the terroir.
