Made from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in equal parts, this wine aims for the fences and largely succeeds. It’s stupendously delicious and addictively drinkable, bearing blackberry and blueberry jam, mocha, anise and sandalwood flavors. It will probably pick up bottle nuances in a few years, but why wait?
Equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this Bordeaux blend is very delicious and very young. It combines ripe, plush cassis and cocoa fruit flavor with rich, fine tannins and fine acidity to produce a wine of extraordinary balance. Should develop effortlessly over the next decade.
