Description

Dark purple, the nose has a pleasing restraint and there is a little hint of blackcurrant, cedar and dried tobacco. The palate is well structured with fine, integrated tannins. There is a cool, fresh sensation with tremendous energy and lift. A lovely swathe of blackcurrant and cream envelopes the palate. It finishes long, rich and bright.

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 60%, Merlot 33%, Petit Verdot 5%, Cabernet Franc 2%anc
