Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux
Principal varietal(s): 56% Cab, 19% Cabernet Franc, 18% Merlot, 7% Petite Verdot.
Promising, saturated purple color. Blackberry, cherry, and smoky oak are displayed in a moderately intense format. Round in the mouth, with a clean, lingering finish and a significant level of chalky tannins. Opened up considerably with airing, and would undoubtedly be better with several more years of aging. - WB Team 2003-02-06
