A blend of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc.
Brilliant ruby red with a purple rim. Dark berry fruit and Christmas cake with some cedar wood undertones and cinnamon. Very round and soft with nice ripe tannins some liquorice and cured
cherries. Mouth feel very long and elegant with a nice creamy chocolate flavor.
The 2005 vintage was a bit cooler and drier than average, making our ripening period longer on the noble red cultivars, giving us full ripe fruit with elegant soft tannins.
Really love this wine. It has a full body and a little edge at the end. But really excellent and really good value.
Fruity but without depth or complexity. A little too much like prune juice.
