2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #40

The 2008 red blend from Anthony Rupert is composed of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It opens with fantastic aromas of black cherries and cassis woven together with tobacco, chestnut and a savory edge. On the palate this possesses a full body with a soft, velvety texture and well integrated tannins, making for a gorgeous mouthfeel. It remains well balanced through the finish where notes of sweet cassis and tobacco linger on. This is already drinking exceptionally well, and I expect it to continue to do so for years to come.
