Previously labeled Rouge Prestige, this unique varietal wine brings huckleberry, elderberry and cranberry fruit into focus, with sharp acids and highlights of clove and oak. It's substantial and tannic, yet without any heaviness to the mouthfeel. Aged in 25% new French oak, it has 10% Malbec blended in.
