Tasting Note:

The blend contains 30% Cabernet Franc which is immediately noticeable on the nose, with a distinct green pepper character behind the ripe black fruit that tumbles from the 55% of Merlot (the balance being Cabernet Sauvignon). There are also plenty of smoky oak, minerals and clear terroir to be found, while on the palate there is a very clean entry powered by loads of sweet berry fruit. Relatively high acidity and alcohol balance nicely, and when the body fills out a bit following a year in oak this will be a splendid wine.
