A gorgeous, polished and curated red with blackcurrant, blueberry and cherry aromas. together with hints of crushed stone and graphite. Medium to full body, a creamy texture and flavorful finish. A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, and cabernet franc. So impressive to drink now, but this will age beautifully. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Comforting aromas of mocha, licorice, red and black berries and baking spice are backed by a subtle but present lick of sweet, toasty oak. The lifted acidity and fine, powdery tannins make for a powerful if slightly austere palate.

This elegant blend of 60% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon is Bordeaux-like in style, with notes of coffee-kissed violets that lend a deep, satiny mouthfeel. Cinnamon and caramel aromas translate to the palate, and a chalky lick of wet stone conveys earthy elegance.

Dense and savory, with sage, bay leaf and palo santo details, leading to plum, black cherry and cassis notes. There is both restraint and richness to this red, with accents of toasted cumin and Earl Grey tea, and a thick wall of velvety tannins

A delightfully perfumed expression, with the Cabernet Franc portion bringing violet and graphite top notes to Merlot's plummy base; the integrated oak reminiscent of festive spices. A mid-weight style with lots of sinew and abundant but supple tannins.
