 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 5%Merlot  14.4% alc
Color: Deep garnet. Outstanding for 10. (3.5) Bouquet: Creamy, black truffle-infused, mature cassis fruit. (3.5) Body: Light heavyweight with an excellent balance of fruit, tannin and acidity. (3.0) Flavor: Parallels bouquet, but quite as expressive. (3.0) Finish: Long and elegant with ashes in the mix. Pretty. (3.5)
Overall: Outstanding balance and ageworthy structure combine with classy cassis fruit and elegant nuances of black truffle and ashes. Very Medoc-like. Already outstanding, but has the tannic structure to continue to develop and improve over the next few years. (16.5)
