Description

Dark ruby, there are pleasing notes of mocha, blackcurrant and wood smoke. On the palate this is very good, impressing with its textural feel. Swirling it around your mouth, you pick up a gravelly, smoky note and some lovely dark fruit. Powerful, there is a bold richness, yet despite all the concentration and density, it feels restrained. It's like a Rolls-Royce coasting down the Champs Élysée.

Blend: Merlot 57.5%, Cabernet Sauvignon 42.5%
