"It is stunningly opulent, fat, and super-concentrated, ... This is an amazing wine."

I am speechless over the nose in this wine. Mint, blackberry, currant and black licorice turn to flowers such as lilacs and roses. Wow. It fills your mouth with the same fruit, but with an intensity of superpolished tannins. It finishes with complex yet reserved coffee, toasted oak and ripe fruit and then in two or three minutes it becomes milk chocolate. Just a joy to taste. A perfect Mouton? 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot.
