Colour: Dark purple with violet hues
Nose: Jumping, fresh aromas of lavender, cassis, red and black cherries and a lick of menthol
Palate: Fresh and approachable flavors of juicy fruits backed by bright acidity, slight nuttiness on the attack, and firm but unobtrusive tannins. Pair with roasted chicken or duck, magret de canard duck breast with foie gras, or a honey and mozzarella appetizer. A late spring afternoon kick starting wine. Rich and rewarding.
Grape Varieties: 100% Merlot
