Grapes Merlot 15%, Cabernet Saivignon 85%.
New oak 80%.
Medium depth of color, it is a deep dark black ruby with a firm rim structure. Fragrant, rich, ripe fruity nose with blackcurrant, plum, liquorice, cedar, toast and coconut accents. Medium-bodied, it is rich with a solid core of ripe vibrant fresh fruit. Good weight and concentration, it is impeccably balanced with some finely structured tannins augmented by a fresh acidity. It has a soft, long lingering finish with lots of sweet ripe fruit. A true classic, it will just get better with age. 96pts. JKW04/16.
