Tasting Notes
nose of cassis, cream, herbs, vanilla and spice with echoes of leather and dried beef jerky. It’s medium-full bodied, taut and a bit sinewy, with dry tannin, with a streak of minerality on the finish

Barrel aged in 75% new oak – 73% French and 17% American. Aged in barriques for 20 months and the blend profile was decided over several months.
