Beautifully rich in appearance, showing a deep,dark core. Seductive aromas of ripe cherries, tobacco leaf, tilled earth and that classic cedar wood fragrance so often associated with Bordeaux-style blends. The wine is taut, showing lovely chalky texture and plenty of concentration. Dense and compact, the tannin structure holds the blend firmly together whilst refreshing flavours of dark red fruit and earthy notes wash over the palate. The wine has a pleasantly persistent finish: sappy, savoury, and inviting of one more sip.

VinousBright, deep red. Blackberry, violet, licorice and herbs on the clean, high-pitched nose. Suave, brisk and light on its feet, offering excellent definition and grip to its black fruit and floral flavors. Really saturates the mouth while retaining a light touch. Finishes with very fine-grained tannins and excellent rising length. Classy juice.

Wine EnthusiastJuicy black berry and boysenberry fruits are upfront on the nose of this Bordeaux-style blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 16% Merlot, 14% Malbec and 9% Petit Verdot. Glimmers of licorice, black pepper and cigar box add depth to the medium-weight palate, while fine yet structured tannins lend length and texture to the ripe-fruited finish. Drink now-2019.
