Another impressive offering at a bargain price, this is a blend of Merlot,
Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc aged in French and American oak
for 16 months. It has rich aromas of black cherry, plum, green tobacco leaf,
smoke and vanilla, followed by full flavours of black fruit including cherry,
plum and raspberry, with notes of black tea and more vanilla and mocha.
The tannins are well balanced, the oak well integrated and the finish long
and smooth with a hint of spice. Good food choices are again richer beef like
a steak or osso bucco, or perhaps lamb or game dishes.
