Blend of Merlot (70%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Cabernet Franc (20%)
raised in 225l barriques. 13.5% ABV.
Bright ruby red in appearance. Attractive nose of dark plum and
cherry, notes of vanilla and spice, twist of pipe tobacco and fennel
seed.. Medium bodied, lovely shape and mouthfeel, gentle slightly
chalky tannins. Good fruit intensity in the plum/morello
cherry/raspberry vein underpinned by suave, high class oak.
Slightly earthy, with hints of dried mushroom on the mid-palate.
Drinking well now and shiould continue to do so for at least 2-3
years. Would be a perfect foil for hearty winter fare.
Armadale Cellars tasting note
