According to the Wine Spectator: "Berry jam on the nose, with mushroom. Medium-bodied, with good fruit and a medium finish."

Broad, ripe and dry; in a softer style but with good fullness for the year. This coats the mouth on the finish, which features broad, dusty tannins." (May/Jun 07)

Classic Merlot sweet berry fruit and earthy aromas in the nose, accented by mineral notes. There is just a hint of sweet baking bread aromas as well, adding complexity. On the palate, medium tannins frame a supple core of fruit. Earthy notes return on the finish. This is overall a lovely and well-balanced, medium-bodied Pomerol that represents the softer and more food-friendly style of Bordeaux while retaining structure and complexity.

Lovely nose - rich and sweet. Fine substance.

This wine’s perfumed nose makes an immediate impression of sweet, almost candied red fruits. It is made in a riper style with good weight and texture that shows a bit more oak influence. In the mouth, fresh plums and cherries, finishing with soft tannins.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
