Wine Details

Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Deep, vivid purple with a beautiful bouquet of blackcurrant and notes of violets. The palate has plenty of fruit, smooth tannins and good acidity. Well structured and very elegant with finesse. The finish has very good persistence and is long. Overall well balanced, an archetypal “claret”.

Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot
