"80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. A pretty nose of violets and roses, with bitter cherry, blackcurrant and liquorice aromas. The palate is fresh and sveltly red- and blue-fruited, guided by rounded, fruit-coated tannins. That wonderful ‘degraded’ Mitjavile fruit profile – melded and supple – leads into a long, elegant finish. One of the gems of the right bank.
