A beautiful wine from proprietor Alexandre Bonnie’s 115-acre vineyard, this blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot hit 14% natural alcohol. The Cabernet Sauvignon harvest was late, ending on October 18. The wine’s dense purple color is followed by aromas of vanillin, smoked herbs, tobacco leaf, black currants and blackberries. This rich, elegant Pessac-Léognan is loaded with potential. It should drink well in 3-4 years and evolve for 20-25.
