The second wine, the newly-named 2009 Le Petit Lion, is composed of 71% Merlot and 29% Cabernet Sauvignon. Made in an up-front, fruity style, it exhibits notes of underbrush, unsmoked cigar tobacco, blackberries and black raspberries. Medium-bodied, soft, round and easy-going, it can be enjoyed over the next decade.
