"57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Raspberry and red cherry aromas, with firm cedary spice. The medium-bodied palate’s cool, dark berry flavours are framed by gratifyingly honest, grippy tannins and sustained by fresh acidity. Treads a line between respect for the vintage conditions and that irrepressible Beychevelle zest.
