One of our "Finds" of the 2011 Vintage, of which few Bordeaux winemakers were able to produce excellent wines due to mediocre weather conditions. This wine is smooth and velvety exhibiting tight tannins and good fruit (plums, blackberries) using 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 60% Merlot with just enough time spent in Oak Barrels to make up this great example of lighter Bordeaux blends in the Graves style. This wine is drinkable now and will keep for many years if well stored, reaching perfect maturity in about 5-6 years (This is one of those wines I like to buy 12 for myself, drink half over the next year or so and forget about the rest for a couple of years when they will have become sublime)
