One of our favorite Bordeaux values year after year. "Shows black licorice, black pepper and berries on the nose. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and ripe, chewy tannins, but in balance. This has very stylish flavors. Should be nice to drink soon. Always excellent value.
Aged in new French oak for 12-14 months, the wine presents notes of sweet creme de cassis, kirsch, licorice, incense, and spice box with ripe tannins.
Fermented in stainless steel with 5-6 weeks of gentle maceration and frequent pump overs, the wine is then gently pressed to barrel.
