Tasting Notes

A muscular three-way Bordeaux style blend that exudes power and concentration, tied up in a structure of fine grained tannin and bright acidity that not only promise extensive evolution, but also entices with every visit to the glass. Brooding dark fruit tightly packed in an intricate frame are delivered with great purity and finesse. A dollop of Malbec contributes the plush, accessible sweet fruit that broadens the palate in its youth, while ageing will unwrap classical pencil lead and cigar box flavours.

Ageing Potential

Mature for up to 8 years.
