(a Bordeaux blend based on 53% merlot): Bright dark red. Cassis, licorice, chocolate and loam on the nose, lifted by violet. Bright, chewy and dry on the palate, with cherry fruit complicated by herbs, earth, spices and licorice. The tannins are a bit dusty and the finish slightly herbal but this wine shows a lovely restrained sweetness and finishes with good shape and length.

Shows a delicate balance in the nose, dipping into chocolate, red and black fruits with mineral. The palate is fresh and bright on attack with undulating red fruits framed with an old world texture; subdued and elegant.
