A fascinating wine. Bordeaux meets CdP. What’s amazing is that the wine shows like a cool climate wine despite being grown in a very warm climate. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Pinot Noir, and 3% Syrah. Starts out very slow and simple, but with some airtime, this really comes alive. Lovely black currant fruit, silky texture, and a heap of earth and dusty tannins. On the nose, there’s some discernible garrigue, which gives it that CdP-ness I mentioned earlier. Solid finish and a wine that goes tremendously well with food. Unlike CdP or even modern styled Bordeaux, this wine doesn’t show sweetness, but stays fully dry. That’s a winner for me, but I suspect many who like plush fruit and sweet tannins will not like this wine.
