A classic Bordeaux-style blend, this wine has an intense, opaque deep ruby colour. Bright and vivacious in the glass, with deep, dark fruit, cassis, plum and black cherry. There is a pronounced minerality on the nose with graphite, cedar smoke and cigar box bouquet. The perfectly formed, ripe tannins are densely packed and tightly woven but remain lithe and almost powdery, giving the wine a generous opulence even at this early phase of its development. Drink with venison, game, pot roasts and noble cheese over the next 10-15 years.
