Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: A fine, elegant Cab/Merlot blend that is hitting peak maturity. The nose is still quite vital featuring a combination of both dried and fresh red fruit with a lovely earthy/spicy undertone. A fine mouth-feel leads to a long, pleasant finish. My note: A smooth, simple but satisfying Bordeaux that's light- medium-bodied. Almost no perceptible tannins. Aromas of earth, cherries and faint leather.

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot food pairings: game bird, mature cheeses, grilled rainbow trout.
