This is a wine from the right bank of Bordeaux appellation Pomerol that was new to me. It is 100% Merlot. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries, plums, black raspberries, cedar and spice. Medium bodied. Firm tannins. On the palate, lots of red and some purple fruits with layers of cedar and slight earthiness. This should continue to mature and improve over the next decade and drink well for ten to twelve more after that. This would go well with roasted eggplant dishes.
