This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense nose of black and red currant, plum, raspberry, maraschino cherry and floral violet notes with hints of dried sage. The medium-bodied palate is fresh and juicy with crisp acidity and bright red plum, red currant, red cherry and some dried sage and thyme on the long savoury finish. Pair this with eggplant parmigiana or grilled lamb chops rubbed in rosemary and garlic.

Blend: 50% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon
