Merlot | Cabernet Franc | Cabernet Sauvignon | Petit Verdot
Defined as a ‘gradual increase in intensity’, the name Crescendo is an appropriate description of this Bordeaux-style blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. A delicate, perfumed nose with raspberry puree and vanilla precedes the red plum and liquorice on the palate, along with supple tannins and a long, lingering finish.
