wine was racked to a range of new and mature oak. During
maturation, the blend was periodically racked and returned to
oak for 12 months prior to filtration and bottling.

Palate: Plum and sweet blackberry Merlot fruit complements
the leafy mulberry characters of the Cabernet Sauvignon,
enhanced further by long grained tannins.
