Enticing notes of black fruit burst from the glass, expressing beautiful concentration and youthfulness. Hints of spice are revealed after aeration, giving this wine further depth. Plump and dense on the palate, the tannins possess a generous, creamy structure. Hints of gingerbread and nutmeg complement the intense fruit. A remarkable finish emerges with elegance and freshness.

ABOUT THIS WINE

The 2016 is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc. As the saying goes, “After the rain comes the sun.” This rang true on June 21st, the first day of summer. Suddenly, as if by magic, the sun shone brightly and continued until harvest, bringing on a salutary dry spell after winter and a rainy spring.

Sumptuous fruitiness, unctuosity of 2009, balance and density of 2010… Such are the characteristics of 2016, with remarkable length on the palate, the seduction and elegance of one of the greatest vintages.
