2009 Peyrabon, Haut-Médoc
63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Light nose. Racy and transparent and early maturing but clean and focused. Very Cabernet. Not fleshy. (Good Value)
Soft and drinkable now with plums and berries. Full body, velvety tannins and a delicious finish.
A smoldering tobacco leaf edge runs from start to finish, lending a nice foil to the core of mulled plum and blackberry fruit. Shows a flash of pepper on the finish.
A property very close to Pauillac that is one to watch in the future. Well-made, value-driven wines with good depth and length. Try the 2004 also.
