A barrel-selection of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and cabernet franc, this is an impressive blend that delivers across the board. Look for well-structured fruit, nuanced flavours with as much depth as breadth, and very good balance of sweet fruit and clean, fresh acidity. The tannins are drying but not too grippy, and the integration has reached “drink now” point. This will age well, but I would drink it while it retains its primary fruit character – say by 2020 or soon after. I’m happy to see a wine of this style with only 12.5% alcohol.
