Beautiful ripe red fruit on the nose with nuances of leather and cigar box. A slight minerality promises complexity and development as the wine ages.

The 9th release of this Flagship wine is Merlot-driven for the 3rd time.
Previously 4 were Cabernet Sauvignon-based and 2 were dominated by Cabernet Franc. For the second time we’ve included Petit Verdot. This is a wine of many layers and nuances which will develop well with ageing and we trust that it will bring joy to your palate.
