Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2004 vintage was marked by moderate rainfall in the winter, lots of rain in spring and a dry cool summer. The end of the season was superb, with fine dry weather in September and October resulting in remarkable phenolic maturity in the grapes. When tasted during the futures campaign, the vintage showed an intense nose with toasted, vanilla notes. There were also plenty of fruit notes, mainly raspberry, blackberry and blackcurrant. The wine is very intense on the palate, with silky ripe tannins. A long and powerful finish.
