74% Cabernet Sauvignon/ 26% Merlot. Attractive, pure redcurrant fruit aromas with darker plum and blackberry fruit characters in the background.

A refined structure and a mineral dimension on the finish, with hints of tobacco, gives this wine a very classic character but it will be delicious in a few years. Drink 2015 - 2020

Reviews & Scores
