Tasting notes

10/02/2010

Dense, bright ruby. Nose of tobacco, sweet cassis, smoky, toasty oak and violet scents. Tannins silky in the mouth, firmer on the finish. Feels almost weightless in the mouth, despite 14% alcohol. Long, fine-grained, tannic, tobaccoey finish. Very good. Lovely ethereal quality to this. 57% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc. 59% of production into the grand vin. Drink 2016-51.
