WA91, JS91, WS89, IWC89, DD91. Smoky, toasty aromas and flavors. Focused nose of blackcurrant and tones of violets with a lush mid- palate, fine tannins and round, toasty finish. Ripe and structured. A semi-new wave wine for this old school property. With quite a St. Julien personality, this wine is a humble CB which has won some of the best compliments.
