    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense ruby color. Complex nose of red and black berries, which is well balanced by vanilla and liquorice notes. After a full attack the elegant tannins reveal all the greatness of their terroir. The delicious palate has a full, powerful structure and good length. The palate aromas confirm the aromatic promise of this wine. A long-keeping bottle.

    Blend: 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Enticing blackberry and licorice character, with a tiny bit of tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a serious finish. Best after 2007.

    Wine Spectator

    Good red-ruby color. Sexy, highly aromatic nose combines black raspberry, licorice, mint, minerals and flowers. Classy, bright Pauillac, with suave dark berry and mineral flavors nicely shaped by firm acidity. Offers early sex appeal but has the structure for a long life in bottle. Finishes with ripe, spreading tannins and excellent grip and length.
