Don’t be fooled by those bright red summer fruits that welcome you in, this descends quickly into darkness with black cherry, allspice and clove. Composed of 58% Merlot and 42% Cabernet Franc, we dig the balance at play on the palate, where lovely freshness and soft tannins support those layers of red and black fruit as they mingle with garrigue, mint and pencil shavings.
