Palate

Signature Merlot’s powerful stance is asserted on the palate – a tangle of wild red and black fruits reveal a deeply satisfying and supple mouthfeel accented by an earthy core of graphite, mocha dust and cinnamon. Intense, alluring aromas of lavender, blackberry compote and red plum suggest its mountainside origins. While rich and round at its core, the wine exhibits a measure of restraint with firm yet fine tannins suggestive of longer term aging
