Tasting Note:

This is not an easy vintage for second wines. Estates had to be very selective. The best terroirs have been successful, but all too often the lesser plots are thrown into the second label with very mixed results. Carruades is a lightweight effort produced from 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Clear purple fruit, noble flavours, quite pretty, but lean. Strawberries, raspberries, vibrant with a sweet fruit finish.
