This is the second wine of a vineyard owned by the Rothschild family and a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot(33%).
It exhibits a dark ruby colour with a thin garnet rim. On the nose are enticing aromas of cassis, raspberry, prune and plum with hints of cedar, toasty oak and lead pencil shavings.
On the palate are above savoury dark fruit flavours intermingled with spice, anise and ginseng.
It has a full-bodied mouthfeel and a long silky finish with moderately high tannins, but well balanced.
