Concentrated dark fruit tones balanced by black raspberry nuances. A hand-picked blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot where yields were restricted to less than 2 tonnes per acre and wine was aged in French oak barrels. This wine will improve with 7 to 10 years of cellaring.
Braised lamb shanks with rosemary and roasted garlic accents or good quality chocolate for a unique dessert combination.
