"Editor's Choice: Run by the Nony family, this 17-acre estate has produced a generous, rounded wine dominated by black fruits. The barrel aging has enhanced the black-currant flavors and the acidity. All these elements are coming together in a full wine that will age well." ~R.V.

"Impressive violets and warm spices with dark cherries, cassis and plum liqueur flavors amid firm long tannins, which carry the wine well for some time." ~J.S.
Blend: 50 Cabernet Sauvignon, 50 Merlot
