A deep ruby colour with an inky purple rim. Aromatics showing opulence and youthful tension. Complex layers of pomegranate, Boysenberry and black cherry lead to baking spice, fresh pastry and a peppery base note of teak wood shavings.
The palate shows a seamless fine structure, silky focus and alluring, supple texture. Fruit flavours are generous – luscious black raspberry and cherry, balanced by rich concentration and lingering espresso notes. This is a big, bold wine and although immediately accessible, cellaring will reward the patient collector for the next two decades or even more.
Varietal blend: Merlot 45%, Malbec 41%, Cabernet Sauvignon 13% and Cabernet Franc 1%. Bordeaux style blend
