Characteristics



Tasting Notes

A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a very intense, dark plum color. Its nose exhibits themes of black and red berry fruits, combined with rich spiciness and cedar wood perfumes. The palate is mouthfilling, supple and succulent with robust tannins and fresh acidity. Nice warm finish. A very elegant and balanced wine that willl age beautifully. Serve with red meats, game and strong cheeses.

Ageing Potential

10 to 12 years
