Luc's time as winemaker for Peter Michael Winery gave him an intimite understanding of the Knights Valley, expertise that he has brought to bear in this stunning Bordeaux Blend, which he considers good enough to name in honour of his son. An intense and complex bouquet of red, black and blueberries intermixed with mineral notes, licorice, fresh blond tobacco and a hint of lavender. Full-bodied, the palate has a richly tannic yet round frame and a great intensity. The hillside tannins and classical aromatic complexity create a harmonious ensemble leading to a very long finish. Built to age for decades, the 2011 is developing beautifully but has many years of life leaft ahead of it.
