An inviting aroma of plum, prune and ripe red berries. Maturation in oak barriques contributes vanillin, licorice and savoury notes.

A supple and well balanced wine showing plum, red berries and hints of leather. Integrated spicy oak is supported by fine tannins and a firm structure.

Great with red meats and game, pasta, cheese or any full flavoured dishes.

69% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc.
