"This shows funky aromas of leather, cedar and dark berries. It is full and dry with flavors of dark fruit and mocha. This would benefit from some time as the wine still has quite a grip."
Ultimate Wine Shop
Dense, with dark cocoa, graphite and roasted spice notes embedded in a core of fleshy plum sauce, currant paste and blackberry confiture. The long, racy finish smolders with dark fruit. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020. 12,000 cases made.
New wood aromas and flavors make this selection seem dominated by toast, giving it a dry, tannic character. The ripe plum fruit is submerged and is likely to surface only after 3-4 years of aging when a powerful, upfront wine will emerge.
This has a delicate bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry and a touch of crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins. There is a keen thread of acidity, whilst the finish is nicely poised, with good reserve and precision. This is a very decent, satisfying Cru Bourgeois. Drink now-2018.
