This blend of our finest red grapes is a structured wine with length and a graceful, fine grain of tannin. Vibrant and deep reds and purples introduce Élu, with aromas of black plum and juicy blackberry. The fragrances of anise, graphite, dark cocoa, espresso and toasted barrel add extra depth and richness.Flavors of black plum and youthful blackberry are complemented with a hint of cassis, together with notes of espresso, black pepper and black licorice.
"Black currants with sweet tobacco as well as espresso undertones dominate the nose of this Bordeaux blend. On the palate, this wine shows concentration, plenty of tannins and a finish with lots of dark fruits. A blend of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 22% merlot, 9% malbec with the balance of cab franc and petit verdot. Better in two years." James Suckling 93 PTS
