Cabernet Sauvignon forms the core of the blend, with notes of cassis and dark jam, framed by wellstructured
tannins. Petit Verdot offers a deep purple hue, floral aromas and firm tannins, while Merlot brings jammy fruit component to the blend. The Malbec and Cabernet Franc increase the complexity of the aromas, lending hints of violet and raspberry.
