A vibrant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. the nose shows aromatics of blackberry and raspberry intermingled with vanilla from the wine's French oak maturation.
The palate aims for a balance between soft dark berry fruit and soft unobtrusive tannins. A wine style that is approachable in its youth, but will continue to develop over 6-7 years.

Bouquet: Blackberry and redcurrant fruits are backed by savoury tobacco leaf notes and cedary characters from the high-quality French oak.
Palate: Rich front palate showing blackberry fruit characters, which are framed by dusty, fine-grained tannins. The palate is balanced and structured with rich and full palate weight enhanced by the well-integrated French oak. The finish is rounded and long thanks to a harmonious balance between the fine tannin structure and soft and balanced acidity. Enjoy with pasta and red meats over the next six to eight years.
