The 2014 Petit Cheval is silky and beautifully aromatic. Sweet floral and herbal notes meld into a core of red cherry, tobacco, anise and mint. Medium in body and gracious, the 2014 possesses striking balance, especially for a second wine. This is a great expression of the estate with the midweight structure that gives the wine its near-term appeal. The blend is 55 % Merlot and 45 % Cabernet Franc.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029
