A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 12% Malbec matured in French oak (25% new) for a period of 14 months. Impenetrable midnight black core with a bright dark red hue. Pronounced red to blackcurrant and mulberry scents sail out of the glass with cedary tobacco characters, black olive, light dusty earth and bay leaf notes adding interest. Medium bodied with a structured sense of elegance to the mouthfeel, rich red to blackcurrant and mulberry fruits are backed by dusty cedar, spicy tobacco and notions of bay leaf. There’s plenty of freshness to the finish and the tightly wound yet well integrated tannins provide a great framework. Concludes long and refined.
Cellar 8-10 years.
