Le Dix 2007 has a deep red garnet color. The powerful nose develops aromas of very ripe black fruit and wild cherries with notes of cedar, laurel, and licorice. The oak is pleasantly integrated thus complementing the enjoyable aromas of toasted coffee, vanilla, tobacco and cinnamon. The Syrah adds nuances of violets and raspberries. In the mouth, it is round, dense, fresh and fruity. Even though the wine is concentrated, Le Dix remains very balanced and elegant improving the freshness and length with rich but ripe and soft tannins. It finishes with a strong taste of cherry and a light bitterness of walnut peel typical of great Cabernets. The Carmenère adds enjoyable touches of pepper. To drink from 2009 but with very good ageing potential. A very good vintage!
"Bright ruby. Cherry-vanilla, dark berries and cedar on the nose, with notes of tobacco, oak spice and dried flowers adding complexity. Round, fleshy, sweet red and dark berry flavors are firmed by a bitter chocolate quality and become firmer with air. The finish repeats the cherry, spice and floral notes and hangs on with good tenacity. This will be even better with a few more years of bottle age.
