This 2004 vintage is plum red in colour with deep intensity. Black berries, black currant, earth, cedar and spice. Well balanced. The flavours echo the nose. A medium long finish.

70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc. Bittersweet chocolate with nice, full richness without being over the top. This is not a shy wine. Plenty of tannins, but very appropriate given the gobs of fruit. Terrific texture. Tasted three... John Sweeney. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Fleur Cardinale 6000ml
