Deep color with red fruit aromas and elegant overtones of well-integrated oak. Good structure with ripe characterful tannin. The Cabernet in this vintage of Echo have a texture and structure close to that of the Grand Vin. This wine is both smooth and powerful. Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc.
The Deuxieme Vin of Lynch Bages has blackberry, wild hedgerow and a touch of tobacco on the nose. Good definition. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe, succulent entry, powdery tannins with a fine blackberry, raspberry and cassis-tinged finish. Moderate length.
