|Streek||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Grape||Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Bordeaux Blend|
Tiny yields of 15 hectoliters per hectare and a typical blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (14.5% natural alcohol) have resulted in a soft, plump, 1997-ish (which is drinking brilliantly) wine. It offers an inky/purple color, plenty of sweet mulberry and boysenberry fruit intermixed with hints of espresso and toast, and a textured, full-bodied, fleshy mouthfeel. There is lots of succulence for a 2007, and this soft, delicious St.-Emilion should drink nicely for 15+ years.

There's lovely licorice, berry and milk chocolate aromas in this young wine. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a pretty core of ripe fruit. Balanced and delicious already, but be patient.
