Impressive concentration and power.
Made from some of the oldest Cabernet Franc vines, it offers black and red currents, violets, vanilla, smoke and sweet spices, which lead to aromas of mocha, sage and toffee. The palate is supple and potent, spicy and succulent with meaty, smoky and dark cocoa flavours lifted by berries. The finish is powerful and persistent leaving an impression of dark chocolate and espresso in its wake.
Suggested pairings: Game meats, lamb, roast duck or hearty stews and pastas.
