Natalie's Score: 90/100

A robust Meritage blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes. Wine grapes are sourced from the High Eden vineyards. The wine is then aged for 2 years in new French oak barrels. Look for bright red berry, plum, ripe cassis, earthy florals and dried sweet tobacco flavours with a lovely mocha finish on the palate.

Food pairings: Asian chicken salad, asparagus and sugar snap sea soup, autumn hodge-podge, pork tenderloin.
