A red wine blended from the best batches the winery can produce every year. Polished black fruit, evident tannins yet supple with a complex palate and a well-integrated modern finish. An iron fist in a velvet glove.
Description
Merlot 60%; Cabernet Sauvignon 25%; Cab Franc 10%, Petit Verdot 5%. A red wine blended from the best batches the winery can produce every year. Polished black fruit, evident tannins yet supple with a complex palate and a well-integrated modern finish. An iron fist in a velvet glove. The nose is evocative, showing blackcurrants, red cherries, cedar wood, lead pencil and cigar box aromas. These develop in the glass and are joined by raspberry, black cherry, spice and a hint of gaminess. On the palate, the wine is powerful but elegant, with fine tannins that continue to soften in the glass. A wine that lives up to the mystical legacy of the gentle giants that once roamed the mountains of the Winelands.
