Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

This pleasant, elegant 2008 is less impressive from bottle than it was from barrel. Straightforward with good acidity and tarry black currant notes intermixed with a weedy, herbaceous character, it should be consumed over the next 5-6 years.

En primeur barrel sample. A blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carmenere, this is a little subdued on the nose – perhaps because of the fog outside! A touch of green leaves. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins, just a little rustic perhaps with a chewy but well-defined, natural finish. It just lacks the usual exuberance this year. Tasted April 2009.
