Tasting Notes: This St Estephe is wonderfully balanced on palate. Refined tannins with great freshness of acidity and long elegant finish. This is a more approachable Saint-Estephe which is drinking wonderfully now but still has a few years of evolution to come. Bouquet of ripe cherries, black currants, floral, smoky and toasted woody notes. This is an impressive red.
