Tasting Notes

Score: 87Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

Score: 87/88Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (128), April 2000

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, no Petit Verdot.
First wine showing some age at the rim, just a little pinky brick around the garnet. Intensely cedary nose. Leafy verging on green and a note of spring blossom, herbal. Dry, tight and somewhere between taut and elegant. Chalky tannins, fresh and moreish, lacks the richness of earlier vintages tasted but quite refined. Cassis leaf on the palate, classic cigar box.
