(75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc) The nose reveals notes of ripe fruits (cherry, plum) combined with floral notes (violet, iris). The palate is fruity, quite structured and expresses aromas of red cherry and black fruits (plum, blackberry, cassis). Also some light spices on the palate. The final takes notes of cassis.
