Natalie's Score: 95/100Some producers seem immune (or allergic) to tough vintages, or perhaps it just brings out the best in them. This splendid, full-bodied red is one such shining example. It has it all: balance, finesse, depth, concentration and length on the finish. Gorgeous dark red and black fruit wrapped in just enough oak. Stunning.
Red Icon food pairings: premium cut of steak, wild mushrooms and a rich demi-glace..

|Aged 18 months in 50% new French oak. This is a blend of 30% Malbec, 27% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 20% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. In the glass, the wine announces itself dramatically with perfumed aromas that include cherry, plum and vanilla. The wine is rich and ripe on the palate, with flavours of black cherry, cassis and mocha. The balance is exquisite and elegant, with a suave and polished texture and a very long finish.|
