Description

Series C 2017 showcases beautiful purity, striking intensity and a remarkably long finish of dark fruit with a touch of clove spice. Twenty-two months in seventy percent new French oak barrique, with the balance in older French oak. Series C 2017 consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (fifty-seven percent), Merlot (twenty-one percent), Cabernet Franc (thirteen percent) and Malbec (nine percent). Forty-six barrels were produced.

This blend displays a deep, intense ruby colour. The nose offers a remarkably complex fruit expression, opening with blackcurrant, blueberry and fresh juniper berry interwoven with sensuous violet perfume. Composed dark fruits transition to hints of chocolate and hazelnut praline. A subtle slate/lead-like minerality underlies a bittersweet, spicy Cola note. The entry is plush and weighty, with an abundance of fine-grained tannins across the palate – most reminiscent of crushed velvet. Although immediately engaging, this blend will mature most gracefully, rewarding the patient collector.
