Tasting Notes

“A lifted blackberry and raspberry-scented bouquet with fine definition, broody, more introspective than I expected, the gravel soils imparting a Left Bank trait.  The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. This is a structured Saint-Emilion with fine salinity towards the finish, one that deserves 3-4 years in bottle, but I suspect will be worth the wait.”

90-92 points, Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate
