This blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot offers a lovely dark berry and stone aromas that seem a touch shy at the moment. The structured palate is full-bodied with firm, grippy tannins and fresh, vibrant acids. Nicely balanced aroma replays come through on the flavour profile, while the finish is more stony with excellent length. Needs 3-4 years for tannins to soften. Tasted Mar/2019.
