The final blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot has resulted in a wine of great power, stature, gravitas and density. The wine has a black purple color and a brilliant nose of scorched earth, creme de cassis, espresso roast, blackberries, truffle
A toasty, modern style, with mocha and blueberry coulis notes leading the way for plush-textured blackberry and black currant confiture flavors. Espresso and mocha accents extend the finish. This has stuffing, but the polish makes the wine approachable no
A new-wood-dominated wine, this is very toasty and extracted, and it is losing some of its fruit in the process. It has a fine structure that will fill out when the black currant flavor gets a chance to shine. Keep for 4–5 years.
Heavily toasted aromas: charcoal, dark chocolate, roasted coffee. Impressive, bold, in-your-face style, but with freshness and vibrancy on the finish. Starts off seeming over-processed but has a lovely natural effortlessness on the finish. Richard Hemming
Intense crimson. Focused nose of ripe red fruits with slightly spicy, menthol-like oak. Well-structured palate supported by a dash of exuberance. Fresh red fruit aromatics. Robust, focused and nicely crafted. Huge potential. By Gilbert & Gaillard in 2011
