This wine, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cab Franc, has matured and taken on layers of dried and preserved fruit characters in the years since Parker's review, and is now at its peak drinking time.
Tasting Note: This richly fruity, disarmingly charming 2006 exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue in addition to elegant black currant and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice and underbrush, a plush texture, sweet tannin, and a layered finish. This is a hedonistic wine to enjoy over the next decade. Drink date: 2009-2019. Score - 89. (Robert Parker Jr., robertparker.com, Feb. 24, 2009)
