||21 months in French Oak, 70% new
This wine is powerful, dense, but beautifully balanced and precise. In the glass is has an evocative nose defined by true cassis, lush red currants and espresso. The palate shows dark brambly berries and a silky, expansive impression from the Cabernet Sauvignon and exotic spice notes and power from the Cabernet Franc. The structure and density of this vintage will allow the wine to age for decades, and though it is now only in its infancy, this wine is forward and muscular.
92-94 points Robert Parker
