Tasting Note:

This has become the controversial wine of this vintage, already likened to Pavie 2003. Don't let this put you off, this is an astonishing wine. Yes it is enormous, alcoholic, modern and unlike any Cos before it. Big, yes, but very beautiful, impressive and extremely decadent. There are notes of super ripe cassis, gravelly minerality, cut flowers and blackcurrant fruit pastels; a veritable kaleidoscope of brooding aromas intertwined with high toned berries and floral hints. Wave after wave of ripe fruit cascades over the palate. Dark chocolate covered cherries, velvety fruit; plush almost debauched in its richness and concentration. Layer after layer of delicious, luxurious fruit, but this has structure too. The tannins are like velvet edged granite; solid, well textured and honed. A really impressive polished Cos. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
