This blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Shiraz, 11% Merlot and 9% Petit Verdot offers massive black-plum character throughout the nose and mouth, as well as accents of black cherry, cassis, tobacco and woodspice. The medium tannins lend good grip to the palate, but resolve fairly quickly on the close. Notes of black currant leaf and fruit skin ride out the close. Enjoy now and through 2020.
