Predominantly merlot, this wine is rich vibrant and muscular all in one. Dark cherries, plum with some layers of spice. Strong tannins but lovely fruit to soften it out. Wish I had more.

Notes of blackberry, a complicated wine with earthy tones. Some black currants, with higher tannins and some depth. Leaves a nice taste follow through.

Absolutely divine. The bouquet packs a punch, velvety smooth and full of luscious fruits.

Ink dark violet appearance with long legs. Bursting black cherry aromas with plummy and fleshy at the same time. A fat, rounded heavy body with elegant velvety tannins and long finish. Enjoyable now, but will probably improve with a few more years in the cellar.
