47% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 6% 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.
"This lush red starts with aromas of cinnamon, plum and pepper, leading into a balance of black fruit, fresh acidity, warming spices and smoke. Rich but balanced by lively lift, it’s a great food wine that will pair well with robust meat dishes. Hold for more integration or enjoy now."
