A 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this has a medium-high intensity nose of black currant, cassis, and some herbaceous and evergreen notes with a touch of oak spice. It is medium-bodied with supple, smooth tannins and red and black fruits flavours, plus aroma replays on the palate. Fresh acids. Curranty notes linger on the finish, with very good length. Tasted July/2019.
