Rich, deep, dark berry notes on the nose, with soft perfume. Nice aromatic complexity. Extremely fragrant but exceptionally light, purity of fruit, soft tannins, fine with a gentle grip and long cooling finish. Succulent and juicy but in a sombre way, the overall frame and execution of fruit is light. It does expand a little towards the finish, opening and becoming more expressive. Gentle with a nice minerality from deep gravel soils and a cooling touch - eucalyptus and fresh mint. Refined enjoyment. A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc. 50% grand vin. Harvest began September 27th. Aging in 50-60% new oak.
