Earthy, cocoa, anise, cassis and a hint of dried herbs and cola. There is a refreshing hint of brine, menthol and floral perfume with a touch of vanilla. A soft entry of flavorful black fruits, cola, and licorice leads into a full mid-palate and very long supple finish.
Blend: 26% Merlot 48% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Syrah 12% Cabernet Franc 4% Malbec - Winemaker Notes
93 points - James Suckling
"Aromas of blackcurrants and dried flowers follow through to a medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a rounded, caressing mouth feel. Citrus undertones to the red fruit. 48% cabernet sauvignon, 26% merlot, 12% cabernet franc, 10% syrah and 4% malbec. Drink or hold."
