The vintage is marked by wooden, dark bittersweet chocolate aromas. Fresh oak contributes spices, vanilla, liquorice, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors, but is well integrated into the rich cherry-blackberry-blueberry cocktail. The notes of aromatic herbs complement the picture. The wine is juicy, expressive and dense.
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc with around only 2 600 cases annual production.
