Tasting Notes: 5 classic varietals for a Bordeaux blend are selected form 9 of their best estate lots. Each lot was fermented and aged separately for 12 months, then aged an additional 12 months after the blending process in French oak. The result is a beguiling puzzle that pulls you in all the right directions…unctuous, complex, rich and balanced…all perfectly done and in complete harmony. Flavors of dark chocolate, black fruits compliment the rich oak and vanilla notes. Saved this for a petite filet dinner, with garlic machers and cream spinach…who needs dessert!
