45% Cabernet; 44% Merlot; 8% Petit Verdot; 4% Cabernet Franc
Deep dark red colour. Expressive layers of Bordeaux varietal fruit with blackcurrent ripe berry fruit and seamless tannins. Fruit layered palate with well integrated oak-derived aromas complementing the primary varietal characters. Very elegant well balanced, medium to full bodied wine with an excellent finish.
