A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, the Sarget has lifted red-berried, raspberry fruits on the nose, lighter and more feminine that its peers though a second bottle was less expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy, quite spicy entry, fleshy in the middle with just a little hardness on the dry finish. Drink 2012- Tasted March 2011.

(70% cabernet sauvignon, 23% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 3% cabernet franc; 72 IPT; 13.5% alcohol) Inky-purple. Bright, floral, cabernet sauvignon-dominated nose offers red berry and mineral aromas. Then more red berries on the palate, with a saline nuance on the persistent, fleshy finish. Bright acidity really extends the flavors of red berries and underbrush. A smooth and very successful Sarget.
