Moderate in transparency, this Bordeaux blend lends a subtle but fruit driven nose into the air as it gradually opens up. Showing masses of dark fruit such as blackcurrants and boysenberries with supporting spicy and vanilla oak, the bouquet leads into a rich and complex palate.
This wine has a multi-layered style that allows an array of characters to emerge the longer in sits in the glass. Clearly the Cabernet Sauvignon component drives the darker red fruits, but the supporting weight and length of Merlot fills out the palate.
It is an intense wine that offers great depth and length of flavor. Enjoy with food dishes of an equally rich presence; a juicy but well-tended prime rib would sit perfectly with this wine.
