You’ll find layer upon layer of complexity woven into the blending of five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties with Cabernet Sauvignon at the core. A touch more Merlot this year tames the tannins and adds plushness to the mid-palate while Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot add threads of plum, rose, forest floor and graphite.
Fruit-driven, with raspberry, açaí and blackberry notes all bouncing through, carried by brambly, slightly woodsy grip, though there's enough fruit to compensate for that. Reveals generous anise and sweet spices on the slightly heady finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
