Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon based wine from St Julien opens with a unique cherry compote and baked potato bouquet with a hint of charcoal and mocha. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, very smooth and suave. The flavor profile is a very tasty stony minerality and cassis blend with cedar and cocoa powder. We also detected some hints of clove and dried herbs as well. The finish is dry and its grippy tannins build-up and stick around for quite some time. The Tasting Panel would serve this wine with well-marbled ribeye steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The nose leads with delicate violets and fresh cassis berries, drawing you into the glass to reveal its layers of rich black fruits, kirsch, blackberry coulis and blueberry spread, with cocoa bean, roasted coffee, and nuances of Asian spices, clove and cardamon. The palate has impressive precision with a flesh of densely concentrated fruits wrapped around a very firm structure of tightly knit, cashmere textured tannins, supported by exquisite freshness. The highly perfumed flavors fill the palate with impressive purity and persistence, with a mix of crushed gravel and cassis purée that linger. Pure elegance, power, and grace.
