54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot from the Sexton Vineyard, fermented separately then blended. Matured in French oak (12% new) for 14 months.
“It’s amazing how some modern cabernets can be so drinkable so young. This cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot blend is utterly delicious, but will surely also age well. Clean, ripely fragrant cassis, cedar, mixed berry aromas introduce a stylish, elegant wine of medium to full body, juicy berry flavours and soft, powdery tannins.”
