A blend of late ripening spicy red varieties. Deep red with purple hue, this wine has a sweet aroma of ripe mulberry fruit, dried citrus peel and some toffee oak. The palate has more savoury fruit, lightly spiced with some black pepper and star anise notes. There is good length of fruit with some drying tannins to finish.
Blend of Merlot (60%), Malbec (30%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). Deep red with purple hue, this wine has some complexity already on the nose, ripe red and black berries with savoury notes of pencil shavings, black pepper and toasted oak. A mid weight palate, good fruit, moderate tannins with plenty of length, makes this fine drinking at present but with more rewards ahead for those with cellars.
