(RP=88-90) Representing 40% of the production, a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% merlot, this has a crisp, earthy, slightly meaty bouquet with good definition and character; traces of cherry liqueur loitering in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded, smooth entry, once again that tertiary note in the background, a touch of thyme with just a little sharpness on the dry finish. Drink 2013-2020. Tasted March 2011. (JS=86-87) Pretty and fruity with fine tannins and a fresh clean finish. Bright and fun.
