Winery Tasting Notes
Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
The leather and plum aromas of Merlot, the aromatic spice and red currant character of Cabernet Franc, the cassis aroma and the backbone from Cabernet Sauvignon with hints of black pepper from the Syrah, have combined to produce a complex, fruit dominant wine. The sensitive oak aging has added a further dimension to the wine without being obvious. Richness and soft, ripe tannins make this wine a serious yet eminently drinkable wine.
This wine is made to be enjoyed while still quite young, so we recommend short term (3-5 years) cellaring only.
It can be enjoyed with a wide range of different flavoured food. Pasta and pizza are a great match with this wine.
