Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cab-based wine from Bordeaux is impressive and a nice value. It opens with a black cherry and smoky oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very nicely balanced, refined and smooth. The flavor profile is a charred oak influenced black currant with notes of black olive. I also detected hints of black licorice and blueberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. This Bordeaux is very good and would pair very nicely with a New York strip steak.

Winemaker Notes: Color: Intense color with purplish glints Nose: Pure and intense, dominated by notes of very ripe red fruit. Palate: Powerful, rich and voluptuous, offering density and remarkable depth. Precise tannic structure that reveals a phenolic maturity, worthy of a great vintage. Finish: Plenty of substance in the finish with good tannic and aromatic length.

Organic status: not organic
