Tasting Note:

“The 2016 Roc des Cambes is a blend 20% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 65% Merlot picked on 11 and 12 October, except the Cabernet was picked on 19 October, and matured in 100% new oak. It has a rich and opulent bouquet with black cherries, kirsch, touches of fresh fig and desiccated orange peel. The palate is sweet on the entry with a lot of sucrose-like texture, almost sorbet-like with blood orange infusing the red berry fruit. There is good structure here, plenty of fruit, much more primal than many of its peers. This was a sample that was difficult to read, so I will reserve judgement until later.” – Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate, 230
