When first poured, the familiar Bordeaux-like aroma envelopes your senses. And sure enough, this wine
is a blend of four of the main Bordeaux grapes – dominated, in this case, by cabernet sauvignon (77%).
Both aroma and flavor exhibit refined red fruit against a backdrop of fine tannin. Well-balanced tannin,
fruit and acidity throughout, with red fruit and acidity popping out again in the medium-long finish.
Simple meat courses such as filet mignon or pork loin are good pairings that will enhance the flavors of
the wine. Highly recommended. 92 points. BSE
