Winemaker's Notes

The garnet red color of moderate intensity displays a slight change at the rim. The delicacy of the nose is combined with the lovely complexity of stewed dark berries, sweet spices, light tobacco, and notes of bracken and cacao. The palate immediately melts from juicy fruit to supple tannins and a fresh vigor that comes out at the finish. The wine, luscious, very pleasant and light, consistently displays gorgeous elegance. This is a delightful Margaux. Decant it an hour before serving.

Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Classy wine. Lovely berry, plum and floral character. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, fruity finish. Love to drink this stuff."
