This is very cabernet sauvignon with a tight palate of ripe fruit and firm and chewy tannins. Medium-to full-bodied, compacted and driven. All the merlot was hurt by the frost here. Juicy finish.
Deep crimson with black core. Sweet black damson fruit. Lots of rocky graphite flavour giving a dark elegance on the palate, and the tannins are supple and add to the freshness. Just a little bit herbaceous on the finish, perhaps? (JH)
