Tasting Note:

51 Cabernet Sauvignon, 45 Merlot, 3 Petit Verdot, 1 Cabernet Franc. Lovely perfumed aromas of wild berries, graphite, cedar and chocolate liqueurs. The attack is pure, focused and precise with a big burst of cassis fruit on the palate. Wonderful texture with silky smooth tannins. It finishes with long flavours of cool creme de cassis fruit.
