The Wine:
Picardy Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc is a blend of approximately 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a wine in the style of old world Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon producing regions - fruity but elegant and with excellent structure which will reward cellaring.

The outstanding features of this wine are its structure, fine grained tannins, low pH without high acidity, excellent colour and pronounced fruit flavours. It should drink superbly for up to twenty years.

There is a wide spectrum of flavours here, ranging from bright red fruits, through to black currants, star anise and a hint of tomato leaf. The oak is subtle, content in the back seat, whilst the refreshing acidity takes the steering wheel and fine-grained, chalky tannins watch from the passenger side.
