This fabulous blend of Merlot (70%) and Cab Sauvignon (30%) begins with beguilingly complex aromas of leather and tobacco joined by cassis, blackberry, raspberry, cherry graphite, vanilla, and black pepper, with amazing dark fruit, herbal, and spicy replays on the palate. It's quite ripe, as per the 2009 vintage, but there's also nice freshness, and in that balance it is both powerful and robust on the one hand and elegant and refined on the other. Indeed, everything is in place, well-integrated tannins and acidity, and the depth and length are both exceptional. Brilliant, high-value Bordeaux.
