Juicy, lush and flavourful with firm tannins and wide appeal. Rich and dense with bright acids and lovely balance....

Soft, fruity, markedly oaky yet very primary, with dry, dusty wood tannins and notable residual sugar on the palate...

Stelvin screw cap closure. In addition to Cab Sauv, it contains 6.1% Petit Verdot, 3% Syrah, 2.3% Merlot, and 2.2% Cab Franc. Barnyard, vanillan oak, red currant aromas that also shows some meaty notes as it warms up in the glass. Medium-bodied with firm tannins. Flavour profile consists of sweet red currants, blackberries, subtle spice, and vanillan oak in the background. Good acids and a long finish that has hints of milk chocolate. Could be cellared another 2-3 years, but drinking well now. Has good crowd appeal. Tasted May/2014.
