Nose waffs blackberry and plums. It is a very nice Bordeaux blend that begins with dark fruits, hints of spices and earth.

Big tannins in this one caught me a little off guard, they could be a little softer.

Nice finish to round out this wine.

2007 vintage. Sweet cedar, vanilla and dark fruit aromas. Has luscious flavours of coconut, cedar and currants. Very nice, integrated tannins in this full-bodied red wine. Tasted Jan/2013.

2007 vintage. Aromas of barnyard and dark fruit with replays on the palate, some chocolate notes. Very dry with chalky tannins. Needs time. Tasted June/2012.

2006 vintage. Notes of currant, cassis, mint, oak and chocolate. Smooth and silky tannins make their presence felt. Tastes expensive. Tasted Jan/2012.
