Winemaker's Notes

This vintage offers the nose aromas of red fruit and spicy notes. In the mouth, one discovers the aromatic richness of Merlot. The weight and fullness of Cabernet Sauvignons give it a fine balance and a wonderful freshness.

Reaches its prime between 2016-2020.

Critical Acclaim

"Pretty plummy. Currant aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long persistent finish. Structured. Very well done from this estate.

Agree with WS that it is made in a classic style which I guess is not my style. Has that heavy feel of too much plum, stone fruits and a woody finish. The wine is overly oaked with much of a fruit finish.
