A top red that shows wonderful black currant, spice, fresh tobacco, and light chocolate. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a beautiful finish. So linear and refined. Yet muscular and long. Needs time to show its true outstanding quality. A superb wine. 80% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, 5% merlot and 5% petit verdot. From grapes grown in the Apalta subregion.
