Neither overly alcoholic nor overly extracted,
nor overly oaked; it is precisely what one would imagine A
Proper Claret to be. The wine contains a substantial dollop of
petit verdot (22%), adding a silky note of violets and textural
elegance, in counterpoint to the lead-in-the-pencil firmness
offered by the inclusion of the virile Tannat (22%). Minty and cedary.
