42% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
This flagship blend of red Bordeaux varieties was produced by hand, and aged for 16 months in French oak barrels.
The taster is enveloped in heady aromas of ripe raspberry and blackberry, baking spices and floral notes. On the palate the wine is layered with flavours of black cherry, raspberry, cassis, mint and blackberry, with complex notes of graphite and sagebrush. The structure is soft and lush, with polished tannins and a long lingering finish. Enjoyable in its youth, the balance and structure of this wine will ensure its ability to age for many years.
