Wine Region: Pessac Leognan, France

Grapes: Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes

The wine offers a smoke,espresso, blackberry, licorice, tobacco, cocoa and black raspberry filled perfume. From a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the wine is soft, round and supple textured, but it lacks the density found in the better vintages of this small production, Pessac Leognan wine.
