Description

Dark purple in colour, this has attractive red fruit on the nose and a very suave feel on the palate, with a creaminess to the fruit and a polished, racy, ribbon-like texture. Lots of vitality this year, it finishes super fresh and leaves one hankering for a second glass.

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 86%, Merlot 14%
