    Winemaker's Notes:

    A youthful fresh Bordeaux-styled blend showing ripe mulberries and plums with spicy, cigar box, undertones. Very accessible with smooth and balanced tannins.

    All hand harvested to ensure a thorough quality cellar selection. Carefully blended to achieve a soft, rich fruit driven wine.

    The perfect all rounder and a must for every wine enthusiast. Enjoy this wine with your favourite dish, grilled meat and friends!

    Blend: 58% Cabernet Sauvignon 42% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    A blend of 65% Cabernet and 35% Merlot, the marvelous 2010 Petit Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot has a herbaceous, Cru Bourgeois-like nose but is fresh, well defined and full of energy. The palate is vibrant on the entry and embraces Old World freshness and vitality better than most Bordeaux! It has a delicious, crisp peppery fruit with a touch of cedar and graphite on the well-defined finish. The only thing "Petit" about this superb wine is the price. Drink now-2014.

    Purchased a case based on RP's review. Tasted on opening bottle and was not impressed. Seemed to have a plastic kind of taste, so let it breath for an hour. Still no change. Major disappointment. Reaaly wanted to enjoy this wine for an upcoming event. Bad batch??? BTW, wine.com has been good to me concerning this purchase, so props to them!
