This blend of 63% merlot, 23% cabernet franc and 14% cabernet sauvignon has a deep red/purple colour and a bouquet of sweet ripe berry fruits. The flavour is generous and balanced. The tannins are very soft, the texture highly agreeable and the wine has excellent drinkability despite its youth. (Screwcap)
