This powerful Merlot makes quite the impression with luscious aromatic notes of cherry, sage and plum, layered with earthy flavours of black pepper, toasted oak and dark stone fruit.
The wine is a blend of Merlot (91.1%), Petite Sirah (5.1%), Malbec (2.5%), Petit Verdot (1%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (0.3%). It spends 18 months in French and American oak which gives it a delicious rich texture and oak notes of toast and sweet spice. The intense fruit is balanced by bright acidity and fine tannins for a supple and velvety mouthfeel.
An ideal accompaniment to smoked baby back ribs, or with hearty pasta dishes and pizza.
