Tasting Notes

The 2007 Sophia, a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc has a deep blackberry, cassis, plum, kirsch and violet tinged nose - in fact it is difficult to discern the Cabernet Franc! The palate is full-bodied and beautifully balanced, good acidity, firm tannins and great weight and yet there is also a sense of weightlessness that marks this out as a stunning wine with a persistent tannic finish. This will need 5-6 years ageing at least. Superb.

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (184), September 2009

Very sweet and luscious. Polished, user-friendly and easy already. Toasty, long and very well balanced. Almost too sweet and nice! SO polished. Drink 2010-2017
