Tasting Note:

Shiny black in appearance with a narrow, vibrant rim. Immediately deep and serious on the nose, reticent yet visibly complex, with aromas of riverbed pebbles, herbs and minerals, tense and angular in profile with a softening edge of gentle smoke; on second tasting ripe blackcurrant and hedgerow flowers abound. On the palate this is streets ahead of the La Mission, with soaring high-tone fruit and piercing acidity, loaded with ripe cassis, red berries and very fine tannins. Great balance here, serious weight, long and structured on the finish, polished and elegant. A blend of 43% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Cabernet Franc.
