A mix of Merlot and Cabernet in a very good but warm vintage. Fermentation in steel tanks and maturation 12 months french oak barriques.
Deep ruby colour.
Delicate smell dark fruit, leather, spice and tobacco.
Fresh warm fruit on the palate with a distinct tannin structure that requires some food to match.
Try with heavy meaty dishes or BBQ.
A very good example of a decent Medoc within budget.
