(R73 x 6 bottles)
An excellent ripe example of this popular Bordeaux variety. The wine is a lovely blend of fruit, oak, and tannin. The bouquet offers a full fruit: mellow, with black and blueberries, plums, cherries with an herbaceous rhythm in the background that permeates all the wine and blends beautifully with the warmth of the fruit. The Palate is broad and deep, juicy and dripping blackberries and cherries. The tannins are firm, yet velvety, but the herbaceous notes create a layered structure interspersed with a pleasant crispness.
