    This wine is about balance, elegance, and a “delicious complexity” factor. There is a lot going on in the aroma and even more on the palate. The flavours run from tobacco through chocolate with much fruit between, while the texture is mouth filling but not cloying. The tannins and acidity hold the wine together. The finish is long, which allows time for the complexity of flavours to reveal themselves. This is a classic steak wine. 38% Merlot 28% Cabernet Franc 22% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Malbec 6% Petit Verdot

    279 barrel lots in the cellar were considered for this blend; 26 were selected to build balance, elegance, and complexity. This is our best wine from this season. Five grape varieties, ruthless pruning, crop thinning and tight grained thin stave French Chateau Ferre barrels gave us a wine with softer, finer tannins, high toned aromas and greater cellaring potential.
