Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) A lush, modern, style, with hyperdrive on the blueberry, loganberry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Nothing gets too heady though, as there's charcoal-studded grip, smoldering coffee grinds and roasted bay leaf notes all in the background for definition.

Winemaker's Notes

Grape varieties: 70 % merlot, 20 % cabernet franc, 10 % cabernet sauvignon Average age of the vines: 28 years An intense ruby-red colour. Delicate woody aromas with notes of toast and ripe fruit. In the mouth the attack is supple and full, the tannins refined and the structure very aromatic. The red fruit comes to the fore - blackberry and cherry. Excellent concentration and a fresh finish with good aromatic return of the fruit.

    First taste, wine was too warm. LF had them chill it for about 15 min, amazing difference! Tasted perfect after that.
