Tasting Notes:

Mid crimson. Very light nose that grew in the glass. Quite a substantial whack of dusty fruit on the palate. Firm with marked acidity but there is more fruit in the middle than on the Haut-Médocs.

This sleek red shows mouthwatering herb notes at the edges of its plum, red currant and floral flavors, with a fresh, focused finish. Offers nice length and purity. Drink now through 2012.

Earthy underbrush, sweet and sour cherry and red currant characteristics along with a hint of truffles are present in this straightforward, austere Bordeaux. Drink it over the next decade.
