Red - Vintage: 2009 - Size: 750 ml.
A blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon with just a touch of Cabernet Franc. A very distinct bell pepper note to the currant and plum fruit on the nose tobacco spice and fresh plowed earth. A very rich and forward style with nice plum plum fruit with tobacco spice on the finish, very well built but drinking nicely with some air time, notes of bell pepper on the finish.
The quality of the fruit and tannins are very pretty here. It’s full-bodied, with round velvety texture and a delicious finish. Very impressive.

Firm tannins, but also ripe, sweet fruits, with a fine balance. While the wine is on the light, fresh side, it does have a good, final structure.
