The color is dark ruby, while the aroma has a rich tone of mocha, cedar, blackberries, black pepper and plums as nose opens up. On the palate, mocha, chocolate, espresso and ripe raspberries. Lots of layers with sweet integrated tannins, great texture, again black fruit with crushed rocks and silky finish. The finish is long and lingering aftertaste that lasts several minutes. Will improve for 12-15 years and hold there for 10 more.
Blend: 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc
The 2008 Right Bank (55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc) is slightly shorter and not as concentrated as the 2007. The lightest of the three vintages, the 2008 is a full-bodied effort displaying lots of cassis, bay leaf, charcoal, and subtle smoke. Expect it to drink well for 15 or so years.
