Smooth, mature, spiced.
From the appellation of Blaye in the Cotes de Bordeaux, this unoaked blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cab Franc and 10% Petit Verdot expresses cherries in vanilla, currents, brown spices and warm pipe tobacco atop pencil shavings, prune and play-doh. The palate shows maturity; dried cherry, balsamic, molasses and toasted spice flavours. There's heat on the finish but it maintains balance and structure. A striaghtforward blend for roasted meat, grilled veggies, lentils or firm cheeses.
