A 2012 red from Bordeaux in the commune of Saint-Estephe on the left bank of the Gironde estuary. Left bank wines are more Cabernet Sauvignon dominant, while right bank wines favor Merlot. Since 2012 produced terrible weather for Bordeaux, many left bank wineries put more Merlot in their blends than the more finicky Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is 57% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Dill, olive brine, black tea, beets, clove, leather, sour cherry. Smooth wine with grippy tannins, high acid, and a salty dill finish. What a wine.
