Youthful nose offers scents of blackberry, blueberry, minerals, violet and Provençal herbs. Plush on entry, then sweet but firm in the middle, with plenty of energy to give shape to the supple, cascading fruit notes of currant, blackberry, iron and flint. Finishes with silky, fine-grained tannins. The grape varieties are 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, grown on a compact 4 acre vineyard, with an average age of vines of about 35 years. Total production is less than 3,000 cases.
