Tasting notes

96WF. 58% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine prefers Merlot unlike most of its peers. 18 months in French oak, 45% new. On the back label owner Terry Peabody tells us it was blended from the best parcels and aged in the best barriques.Blackish crimson. Exotically ripe and alluring on the nose. A bit like a box of chocolates that you vainly try to resist. Then some pretty aggressive tannins grab the palate, followed by some rather prominent acidity. Definitely needs time, try in 2020.
