Winemaker Notes

This 2010 presents an incredible deep purple color. Lot of fruits and already showing an appealing soft roundness on the palate. Incredibly soft tannins supported by a wonderful acidity that provides a remarkably long finish.

Grape Varieties: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

Concentrated black fruits intermixed with spring flowers, some high class, subtle toasty oak, graphite and a touch of blackberry and cassis all jump from the glass of this dense, full-bodied, formidably endowed, massive wine.

Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points
