"The Opulent. This opulent blend of Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon typically conveys cassis, strawberry and red forest-fruit, with undertones of chocolate and caramel. Bring out the strawberry baskets!… the bouquet of this wine reminds me that they are in season as I write these notes. The flirtatious fruit of this vintage drunk so young may mask the depth and complexity therein.
This vintage (14% alcohol by volume) promises significant ageing potential and will add layer upon layer of complexity in time. Whilst the Merlot dominates the nose at this young age, the structure given by the Cabernet Sauvignon is what will give this vintage legs. Roast rack of lamb medium to rare served like lollypops-on-a-stick, rabbit, quail, tuna perfectly seared with a course-ground pepper crust, a platter of cold cuts, grilled aubergine and summer vegetable risotto all come to mind as I sip and enjoy… Owners’ Tasting Notes – May 2019"
