Varietal: Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon/ Cabernet Franc
Vintage: 2012 Colour:Red Style:Dry
Producer: Chateau Cantenac
Made from our older Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, the fruit for this wine was picked in perfect conditions during the cool early mornings of late September and early October.
The colour shows a deep dark red which is marked by its’ beautiful Cabernet character, complete with fresh, lush rich notes of black plums, cassis, cherry, raspberry, figs, and fine leather, with further hints of liquorice, spice and soft vanillary new oak.
On the palate, it is full-bodied with a pleasant attack of fine soft tannins and an aromatic evolution that spreads satisfyingly tight across the palate and becomes more defined as the wine lingers in the mouth. It is savoury, delicious and well-made wine, quite forward in style, with an elegant and rounded, supple blackberry and plum finish that displays good restraint and poise. Drink 2018-2022.
