St Estephe 17
A juicy approachable 2nd wine, we really love this.
"Merlot dominates the aromatics, a mélange of black and blue fruit, later crushed violet making it almost Margaux-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet core of fruit and crisp acidity. It is quite saline in the mouth and then tapers towards a cedar-tinged finish that expresses the Cabernet Sauvignon. Good potential and a fine second label.” 88-90/100 Neal Martin 88-90/100 Parker 90/100 Decanter
