Made from the five ("quintus") Classic Bordeaux varieties, in a Prince Edward County Blend. With time and air, dark fruit emerges, alongside resinous herbs, graphite, and elegant, well integrated wood spice in a complex and engaging ensemble. The palate is really well-structured, firm and gritty, concentrated without heaviness, with just 12.5% alcohol declared yet good physiological ripeness nonetheless. What really draws you in, however, is the distinctly saline-minerality. I'd tuck this in the cellar for another couple of years at least but be sure to decant ahead if serving now. A distinctive wine of place. (Tasting Notes by John Szabo) 100 cases produced.
