2009 Chateau Lescalle

This is a delightful blend of zingy cranberry and rich blackberry. The nose shows very pretty high-toned red fruit. The nose shows an interesting blend of red and black fruit, bright cranberry and rich blackberry. The red fruit lingers on a long finish. Tannins are firm and are well balanced with the acids. Drink with duck. Recommended. 89.
