The Carignan that goes into this wine comes from vines planted in 1958, dry-farmed, bush-trained near Melozal, and gives the blend a tremendously balanced fruit note.
Sour cherry, raspberry, cassis. Piercing acidity and fine tannins. This Cabernet-led blend robust and fruit forward, its tannins create roughness on a powerful finish. Very elegant wine.
