Trained in Bordeaux, he is certain that terroir is everything.
50% Cabernet Franc, 42% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, this has dark, pure blackberries on the nose, ripe and inviting, with gentle earthiness and a promise of chalky finesse. Taut and tightly packed from the mid-palate to the finish, this has lifted, sustained acidity persisting, balancing fruity flamboyance with superb structure.
