“A blend of cabernet sauvignon 37%, petit verdot 21%, merlot 20%, syrah 7%, cabernet franc 6%, tannat 6%, viognier and kolor 3%. Intense, fine-grained wine with a mix of spice, berry and oak flavours that are challenging to analyse and describe. A firmly-structured wine with dusty tannins promoting a slightly grippy finish. Needs time.” – Bob Campbell MW
