Teeming with aromas of bramble, white flowers and violets, and flavours of dark ber-ries, white pepper, anise and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is a bold juicy red, with a lengthy finish of velvety soft tannins, tobacco leaf and balanced acidity. Drink now or cellar to 2030.

Critic's Rating

This is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. The wine was aged 18 months in new French oak. The wine has the age to have developed lovely cassis aromas. There are flavours of dark fruits mingled with blackberry, cassis and coffee. The tannins are long and ripe.
