Showing the richness of the vintage, this is a warm and ripe wine. It has weight, but is given a fresh point by the black currant fruit and forward acidity. It is not for aging, so drink now.— R.V.
From a parcel of Merlot at Château Lezongars, this is a burly, ripe wine; full and packed with solid fruits and dry tannins. The weight of the fruit should sustain and help soften the dryness. It certainly has the richness.— R.V.
