Beautiful blackberry, mushroom, bark and oak leaf. Some pine cone, too. Full-bodied, round and savory with layers of ripe fruit. Rather chunky wine, but nicely done. Drink after 2025.
Wine Tasting Notes
Elegant and inviting, the Cinq Cepages opens with beautiful aromas of fresh raspberry, red and black currant, sweet floral fruit, and notes of lavender. The lush mouthfeel is filled with supple fruit, warm milk chocolate, toasted chestnut and fall spice flavors. The vintage of Cinq Cepages showcases incredibly refined and smooth tannins which leave a silky finish. The wine is rewarding now and ready for enjoyment but will also evolve over time with proper cellaring.
A blend of the classic Bordeaux grapes consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon (83%), Merlot (10%), Cabernet Franc (3%), Malbec (3%), and Petit Verdot (1%).
