“Ruby with purple edge. Bouquet of currants, herbal, coffee and vanilla bean. Full weight with an excellent balance of fruit, acid, tannin, alcohol, oak and an on-going finish. Will age very well for up to a decade,
or try it now…” – 4.5 stars

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot work together to create a wine that exhibits plush fruit supported by tannin depth with elegance, suppleness and structure. We make this wine to cellar for a number of years. A youthful wine will therefore exhibit well structured tannins that demands a complimenting food while a wine with greater than 4 years of age will begin to deliver nuances of flavour, texture and length that can only be achieved by making the wine in this traditional style.
