A blend of 33% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 12% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot.
This sophisticated "Right Bank"-styled Bordeaux blend debuted in the 2004 vintage as a complement to De Toren's legendary "Left Bank"-styled Fusion V. A higher proportion of Merlot makes this delicious red softer and more approachable in its youth than its blockbuster sibling. It delivers intense aromas and flavors of plum, dark berries, and spicebox with classic notes of tobacco, graphite, and leather.
"Supple, with good focus to the herb, black cherry, plum and tobacco notes, which all mingle well on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2009."
