Blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, and 3% Merlot. Medium-to-high, slightly jammy aromas of plum, black cherry, and sweet oak. On the palate, it's medium-to-full bodied with rich, silky tannins and flavours of mint, cassis, black licorice and vanillan tones. The acids are mouth-watering, while the finish is long and has hints of minerality. A rich wine that should drink well over the next 5-6 years. Tasted Oct/2015.
