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)
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. Drink now through 2014.
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.
