2011-Sophia

Why we like it…

Elegant with excellent structure – a top Bordeaux Blend from a producer that never disappoints

Accolades…

A blended of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2011 Sophia is medium to deep garnet-purple color and presents a nose of warm cassis, preserved plums and blackberry compote with hints of pencil shavings, cinnamon toast, plus a touch of Mediterranean herbs. Medium-bodied and tightly knit in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of chewy tannins and balanced acid framing the conservative fruit cone through a finish with good persistence. Drink it now to 2021+.
