Description/ Tasting NotesPleasant red cherry, red plum and mocha-scented nose showing momentous definition and purity. Medium-bodied with stringy tannin, moderate acidity, foursquare but focused with a brisk and rather abrupt finish. Hedonistic, rounded in feel and ready to go.

Region Info/ Origin
The Pomerol region is located at the northern border where viticulture was present in the area during the time of the Romans. Though it is uncertain as to the origins of the name "Pomerol", but it is speculated that the word was derived from the Latin word poma, which refers to a fruit bearing seeds and is the origin of the French word pomme, meaning apple. This theory is supported by the region's long history of polyculture with many other crops, particularly fruits and grains, being cultivated in the area long before viticulture became a primary focus.
