A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Shiraz and 5% each of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, this rich and approachable wine boasts lush aromas and flavors of brambly black berry, cherry and currant alongside notes of violet and chocolate fudge. The mouthfeel is like crushed velvet, with a creamy texture and a decadent finish reminiscent of chocolate-covered espresso beans.
