The 2010 Right Bank is a dark purple color with deep red at edge.
Aromas of blue violet flowers, bright red and raspberry compote, eucalyptus, and spices that include clove, anise and allspice. The palate follows the nose and reveals a wonderful balance. The oak and grape tannins are seamless, the acid is bright but does not detract from how supple and approachable the wine is , even in its youth. The wine has the framework to hold up for 30 years, but good luck waiting that long!
Blend: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc
"The 2010 Right Bank is a pretty wine laced with small red fruits, flowers, licorice and spices. It shows lovely detail and finesse in a translucent, mid-weight style that is quite appealing. This lithe, elegant red impresses for its length and balance. In 2010 the blend is 63% Merlot and 37% Cabernet Franc.

"This estate has excelled with its Right Bank blend, a St.-Emilion look-alike, since it was first introduced. The 2010 Right Bank, a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, offers attractive, complex aromas of tobacco leaf, licorice, spice box, black currants and cherries. Medium to full-bodied, opulent and fleshy, this winner is ideal for drinking over the next 10-15 years."
