Item no. 122883
Deep color and aromas that contain intense notes of fruit, as well as touches of licorice and mild spices. The palate is stylish, with tannins that are finely structured, clearly ready for the long haul. The final impression is powerful yet classy, quite free of any weightiness.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
Blueberry, currants and blackberries on the nose and palate. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Very well done here.
Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points
Features loam, dark chocolate and steeped plum and black currant fruit, staying polished overall, with a singed apple wood note integrated through the solid finish. Shows excellent typicity. Best from 2015 through 2028.
This blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot is an up-front, seductively styled Pauillac (one of the more forward and evolved wines from this appellation in 2010). Deep purple, with exceptionally subtle texture and oodles of cassis fruit as well as hints of mocha and white chocolate, it is an elegant wine, but the overall impression is one of considerable flesh, fat and succulence. It will be hard to resist now, but can be cellared for another 15+ years.
Tough at the moment, this is a wine with impressive concentration. It's solid and chunky, with massive structure. The fragrant finish is a sign of the pleasure to come.
