The colour is vibrant ruby with intense notes of mulberry, cherry, rhubarb and violets. Full bodied, with well-balanced fine grain tannins providing structure and age ability. Well integrated French oak supports the intense, fleshy forest fruits and long finish. This wine benefits from 20 months maturation in French oak barriques, resulting in an elegant and complex Margaret River Cabernet Merlot. It becomes the sophistication and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon with the warmth of Merlot and the lifted aromatics of Cabernet Franc.
