Grapes: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot.
Color: Dark ruby, medium depth +, good intensity.
Nose: Blackcurrant, toast, dried herbes, some tar, some earth, and oak.
Palate: Full bodied minus, mature fruit of blackcurrant and plum, soft and pleasant in mid palate, good consentration, good balancing acidity, tannins integrated and starting to soften, medium long finish of mild vanilla cigars ( mexican ), some toast and a little too much dry oak.
Foodmatch: lamb, veal, not too heavy game, fat cheese and fat sauces, grill, turkey.
Cellaring: 2-6 years. I think 2 years should integrate the oak a little more.
Alc: 13 %

Nice pleasant wine, but I expect more from this producer. 20 pounds sterling, Heathrow, London.

Best Regards
