The 2011 vintage displays fresh almond, wild strawberry and cassis. e wine has delicate notes of smooth caramel. Polished tannins, dark berries, cocoa and sage accompany a long elegant nish.
A vintage that demanded experience and selection, 2011 was characterized by unusually wet conditions. The growing season began with a cold spring, delaying bloom after an early budbreak. Summer’s average temperatures prolonged the growing season. Rains at the beginning of October precipitated a selective harvest, where our Bordeaux experience of such conditions proved to be very useful.
