Tasting Note:

A massive 90% of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend this year, the top wine accounting for only 39% of the total production. Very deep, dark appearance; fiine nose that offers minerals, cigar-box and fine oak aromas over plenty of ripe red berry fruit. Considerable structure but impeccably balanced, which belies the wine’s weight. Silky smooth in the mouth, offering pure, ripe fruit across the palate with classic finesse and great polish; remarkably persistent flavours. Excellent.
