DESCRIPTION:
*Vintage may vary by location*

Scents of blackberry, wood smoke cedar and earth fold into a single, tantalizing olfactory statement. In what seems like one seamless garment, the aroma and flavor meld, caressing the palate with the unmistakable flavor of Cabernet and the textured feel of Merlot. It finishes with lasting flavors.

Robert Parker at one time called Recougne the finest Bordeaux Superieur. It is an estate that has produced wine for over 400 years, and its name is said to have come from King Henri IV in the early 17th century, in "recognition" of the quality of its wine.

• Merlot • Cabernet Franc • Cabernet Sauvignon •

This ripe wine is full of black fruits and ripe tannins, suggesting a fine future. It's structured and dense, which promises richness as it develops and opens up. Give this concentrated wine until 2022.
