The texture this wine possesses carries through from start to finish. This is a forceful wine with power and grace from the Cabernet Franc. The Merlot in the wine adds fruit and a wonderful sense on the palate of freshness and red berries. Cabernet Sauvignon serves to knit the wine into a whole and provides, along with the other varieties, a wonderful lattice like structure that allows for the other flavors in the wine to present themselves. Very good nose for a wine so young.

Similarly colored, yet a step up in richness and depth, and certainly not aromatically challenged, the 2010 Champoux Vineyard is a superb blend of 42% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc and 26% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 21 months in barrel, it possesses gorgeous aromas of black raspberry, creme de cassis, dried flowers, spice box and a dusty pebble minerality on the nose. Medium-bodied, elegant and beautifully balanced, with fresh acidity and moderate tannin, it has upside and should round into form with another 2-3 years of bottle age and have over a decade or more of total longevity. Drink 2015-2022.

This is a blend of Merlot (42%), Cabernet Franc (32%) and Cabernet Sauvignon coming from vines with an average age of 30 years. It has light but complex notes of cherries, plum, herbs, flowers and bittersweet chocolate. It's restrained and understated in style with seamless fruit flavors, mouthwatering acids and edgy tannins that need some time in the cellar to calm down.

The firm tannins wrap around expressive black currant, blueberry and plum fruit, with a hint of coffee emerging on the long, persistent finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2015 through 2020. 692 cases made.
