Wine Review: This dark red colored Cab based blend from Pessac Leognan is Excellent! It opens with a black cherry bouquet with a hint of cedar. On the palate, this wine is wine is medium to full bodied, nicely balanced, soft and smooth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black currant with notes of black olive and a touch of black cherry. The finish is dry and its tannins build up and last for quite some time. In the near term, I would decant this wine and pair it with a New York strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The outstanding weather in 2015 resulted in rich, fruity wines with great balance and excellent structure. Made from very ripe fruit, they have a perfect harmony and a remarkable underlying softness. Powerful Cabernets dominate the blend. Rich, fleshy and dense, they harmonise with the well-structured Merlots. The Petits Verdots are dark and spicy, and bring a touch of complexity to the wine.
