(Wine sampled from tubes) Sourced from vineyards in the appellation of Pauillac, this blend is composed of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine opens with a deep ruby hue and a delicate bouquet of spring flowers. It is framed with pure red raspberries and currants that are layered with brown spices, red licorice and some crushed minrality.
