Tasting Note:

A typically high percentage of Cabernet Franc (75%) the rest made up of Merlot. Harvested before the rains on 12th October, this boasts a garnet, glinting ruby and purple colour, with a very dark core. An unbelievably complex nose that begins beautiful restrained and builds remarkably to many layers: finely perfumed, jammy fruit; creamy chocolate; minerals; cigar box and a hint of oak; delicate spices and roasting meat. High alcohol on entry, quite big structure. Delicate beginning, elegant continuation, superb balance, great depth, elegant fruit, continuing impressively. This wine is outstanding.
