An interesting blend of 53% Marselan, 20% Caledoc, 15% Pinotage and 12% Carignan, this starts off a bit rubbery, but that quickly blows off to reveal attractive scents of blackberry and plum flesh. The medium-weight palate has a texture like crushed velvet and is loaded with ripe black-fruit flavors, while accents of cocoa nib and tobacco unfold on the finish.
