Wine Details

Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) Our 2008 vintage possesses a complex and highly perfumed nose of red fruits, ripe vineyard peaches and spicy notes (black pepper and nutmeg). The structure is balanced and elegant throughout. The tannins are fine, with a finish that mirrors the initial fragrant fruit nose.

Blend: 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
