Lush, round, chocolatey, and creamy, this is loaded with loads of dark, ripe, black, with fresh, red fruits backed with equally dark chocolate, and smoke.

The wine blends 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. 14.5% ABV. Drink from 2027-2039. 91-93 Pts.

A dollop of honey, a squeeze of citrus and a tinge of tangy that rejuvenates the palette, this wine unveils a subtle, respectful line of stone which accents the juiciest of fruit. Due to the frost, there is a much higher percentage of Semillon than usual, giving the wine more fat and marbled qualities and a bit more sweetness.
