The 2016 'Epinette' is a seductive blend of 46% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch Petit Verdot. You are immediately intrigued by the intense bouquet of this wine which shows violets, blackberry cordial, dark chocolate shavings, Turkish coffee and anise. The beautiful aromas compel you back to the glass for more. The palate is plush and exceedingly rich, showing an inviting mouthfeel. Black tea, Asian spice, mocha and creme de cassis flavors all entice. Moderately tannic, try to give this at least two more years to fully evolve as this wine will only get better with some time.
