Out Of Stock

Limited, vinoteque wine.

Full and complex. A multi-clone blend of five noble varieties. Explosive and evolving aromas of ripe blackberries, leather and pencil crayon shavings are followed by hints of cedarwood, tobacco and trademark cassis character. A serious, tightly packed wine with a long lingering finish. A wine with a great pedigree that will reward cellaring. Decanting recommended.

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec
