This wine has a deep crimson colour, complex nose of plum and berries, with subtle undertones of cassis, smoked bacon, and spices. The pleasantly integrated French oak, coupled with elegant fine tannins make this wine well balanced and satisfying on the palate. Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Malbec.

15 days on skins post ferment. Basket pressed into 100% used French oak. 50 dozen. A juicy start leads to a stern finish. As a young wine it begs to be decanted. Spearmint, redcurrant, twists of briary herbs, boysenberry. It doesn't feel thick, it feels lively. Or it does right up until the finish, where slightly coarse tannin takes over. Extra time in bottle won't hurt it.
