Accented with a hint of Merlot, this is a beautiful bottling from a classic estate. Aromas of purple flowers and red cherries rise from a bed of cedar and graphite. Over time, plum, leather and tobacco join the party, dancing with cherry candy and wet stone. Delightfully energetic now, the evolution over time will be something to behold!

Wine Enthusiast

With 10% Merlot, this is a structured red that's built by broad tannins but approachable in its youth. Earthy peat, dried herb, cedar and cigar box play against a depth of dark cherry, cassis and plum, while fresh acidity permeates beneath, making for a cohesive package.
