A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Pinot Noir, 3% Syrah.
Deep broody wine.
There’s Iodine, graphite and a slight earthiness.
Drying tannins and a smattering of Herbs de Provence.
Brimming with blackberry, blueberry and cassis.
Young wine with great potential. Took a while to open up.
The thing that got me with this wine is it’s balance. Perfectly poised with nothing really sticking out.
A perfect match with T-Bone grilled on top of fresh rosemary. Excellent stuff!
Approx $95 at Swanbourne Cellars – Liquour Barons. Sealed under Cork.
