Dry, Spicy, Tangy, Juicy
|TASTING NOTE: A blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon/45% merlot, this is attractively priced. It's still in its youth, as indicated by the purple edges on the otherwise opaque black plum colour and the perceptible, almost fully integrated tannins. The nose is wonderfully complex with notes of tobacco, strawberry jam, toasted walnuts and nutmeg aromas. It's full bodied on the palate with juicy tang and flavours of blueberry, cherry, and spice. Keep in the cellar until 2024 or enjoy now with a medium-rare, grilled steak. Score - 93 (Dave Isaacs, winecurrent.com, Jan. 18, 2018)
