Blend: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot matured for eighteen months in French oak, 20% new.
Cabernet Sauvignon leads this complex blend with pronounced black fruit driven aromas of plum and blackberry, accompanied by hints of violet and eucalyptus. On the palate dark fruit follows through, complemented by the subtle use of French oak which lends notes of tobacco and spice. A full-bodied wine with a long lingering finish, worthy of cellar ageing for years to come.
A good accompaniment to slow-cooked beef stew with mashed potatoes.
