This finely perfumed wine has a percentage of Cabernet Franc in the blend giving elegance as well as contrasting well with the ripe, jammy Merlot. This generously structured wine is smooth, juicy with red fruits and acidity. It will age well over the medium term. Drink from 2024.
Bright and fresh, with floral, bitter cherry and damson plum notes streaming through, carried by a slightly brisk-edged iron accent. Shows a savory echo through the finish. Drink now through 2026. 11,667 cases made.
