Winemaker's Notes

Delicate aromas and natural elegance of Cabernet Franc, admirably brought out by aging in 100% new oak barrels. In this way Monbousquet achieves a superb balance between finesse and power.

Critical Acclaim

"Monbousquet (Gerard Perse’s home estate) has fashioned an elegant, medium-bodied 2004 exhibiting abundant amounts of sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with black currant, licorice, and spice box characteristics. Round, generous, and silky textured, it is the most developed and forward Monbousquet produced in recent vintages. There are just over 6,000 cases of this blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next 12-14 years "

This bottle started big with intense flavors of licorace, spices and leather, but mellowed out a little as we worked through it. Not as elegant as I might have expected from this merlot centered wine.
