This was the last wine I tasted on my trip, and I’m glad I did. This beauty is impressive and displays classic Cabernet flavour, with notes of redcurrant and blackcurrant - with a pleasing herbal hint which keeps the palate alive. From its blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with some Merlot it has layered depths, but it’s also elegant, pure and balanced by a bright black cherry character. Very stylish and deliciously gorgeous.
