Tasting Notes

A blend of 60% Carignano with the balance made up of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. A beautifully fresh red, a hint of structure and fine backbone of acidity but predominately a weighty concentration of plum, dark cherry and subtle spice. Ageing in old oak has softened the texture and provided balance without adding any overt oak character. The finish is mineral with a hint of rubber and a powerful whack of bitter cherry that lifts the palate.

Reviews & Scores

A delicious red with dark chocolate and fresh herb character plus plum hints. Medium to full body, round tannins and a fruity finish. Drink now.
90 Points, James Suckling

An assertive herbal note announces this balanced red, layered with subtle black currant, iron and ground spice flavors that gain momentum on the supple, refined finish. Carignano, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2019. 12,500 cases made.

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.

TASTING NOTES

Modern but restrained fruit with a tremendous floral scent, dark chocolate and leather. Manages to tame the wild tannins of Nebbiolo, giving a fine abrasion on the palate and bright acidity. Remarkably delicate structure, and very much drinkable now.

TASTING NOTES

An harmonious blend of 93% Merlot with 7% Cabernet Franc, this is a very attractive, medium to full bodied wine with ripe plum aromas mingled with sweet wild herbs and hint of lavender. Refreshing red plum flavours, with darker forest fruit notes developing as the wine evolves, are balanced by a lively freshness and a fine mineral quality which runs...
