About the wine

Tasting notes

A bit of a ‘Médoc’ blend this year, with 85% Cabernet Sauvignon,12% Merlot, 2% Malbec, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Bright red fruits, red currant, plum, bay leaf and cedar. Soft, medium bodied with plush ripeness on the palate. Lengthy juiciness that finishes dry with a hint of blackberry.
