Focused, with solid bitter cherry, plum and cassis notes framed by judicious toast. Lingering tobacco and iron notes keep this nicely grounded. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2013 through 2018.
Loads of berry fruit intermixed with some roasted herbs, spice box and licorice can be found in this excellent Haut-Medoc, which has medium body, lots of fragrance and very pure flavors. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. (A member of the Association of Crus Bourgeois du Medoc.)
(a 50/50 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon) Dark ruby-red. Enticing nose hints at sweet blackberry, cedar and flinty minerals. Balanced and fine-grained, with flavors of ripe plum and raspberry syrup and cassis complicated by a flinty nuance. Finishes with satisfying length and a touch of warmth.
