46% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Franc, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot
Dark red almost black in color. The aroma is classic fruit-driven with cassis and dried fig notes, fine earthy mushroom with elegant toasted sandalwood and iodine. The mouth-feel is rich with good concentration and layered with ripe tannins and is well balanced with vibrant fruit, nice oak and some licorices and minerality. The finish is long with dark chocolate and some black olive. This blend is a great statement for this region and will unfold for many years to come.
Food Pairing Notes
We suggest decanting this wine for at least one hour before serving. Pair it with rich red meats, especially lamb and game, wild mushroom risotto or aged and “stinky” cheeses. This wine will age beautifully.
