55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 11% Malbec, 5.7% Cabernet Franc, 0.3% Petit Verdot
The wine is dark red brick in color. It has classic aromas of cassis and dried plums with iodine and licorice notes backed by fine toasted sandalwood and a beautiful flintiness. The mouth-feel is big yet elegant and focused with the Cabernet Sauvignon clearly leading the charge. There is a bold fruit forwardness and a ripe layered tannin structure. The Malbec provides a nice mid-palate and the finish is compact and has great minerality. This wine is delicious when enjoyed young, but it will certainly improve with age for a decade or two.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve at cellar temperature, or slightly cooler. Pair this versatile red with flavorful pasta dishes, grilled or braised beef, game or lamb. Or serve it with a wide selection of richer cheeses and dark chocolate.
