Expert Reviews

Deeply perfumed with scents of violets, cassis and plums, with meaty suggestions of very ripe fruit beneath highly aromatic creamy mocha oak. Sweet, slightly confection-like berry fruits present a fine and supple palate supported by creamy oak and a fine spine of bony tannin. A more restrained and willowy expression of this wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

The fruit for this wine came from low yeilding, dry farmed, 25 year old vines.

The blend is made up of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

It is a wine of intense concentration and will improve for at least another 10 years.
