Tasting Notes

WS94

Lithe, supple, refined and focused, playing its mocha-accented blackberry and cherry fruit against silky tannins. The finish rolls on and on without losing its graceful sense of elegance. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

WA94

More rich, layered and concentrated, and also showing the age-ability of the wines, the 2004 Cote Bonneville is from a cooler year which was described by Hugh as similar to 2010. Made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot that was aged in 100% new French oak, it is still incredibly youthful and fresh on both the nose and palate. Offering up big minerality, cedar box, spice, cherry and cassis aromas and flavors, it is a medium to full-bodied blend that has a light, fresh texture, almost no evolution and a classically constructed, focused finish. A joy to drink, it should continue to evolve for another decade or more. Drink now-2023+.
