An intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim.
The nose is expressive with ripe blackcurrant fruit, plums, spice and lifted floral aromas.
On the palate it is medium-bodied with flavours of cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate.
The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh and the flavour profile focused and linear.
The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste.
52% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot.
