Sauvignon with the medium-to-dark bodied richness of Cabernet Franc’s notes of plum, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, sage, bay leaf, rosemary, tobacco, bell pepper, violets and eucalyptus.
Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Rich and full-fruited, the Argentina trio brings together the lush plums, dark cherries and hints of espresso seen in the best Malbecs, with full-bodied dry Cabernet Sauvignon and the velvety vanilla, cedar and berries of Merlot. The result is a jam-coloured, juicy wine with a velvety Texture.
