Tasting notes

The nose is gorgeously rich and classical with aromas of cassis, red cherry, leather, cedar, vanilla and cigar box. The palate is soft, and exquisitely supple, leading to a mature spice laden finish that oozes sheer class. The classic combination of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon provides classy redcurrant fruits, with good weight and intensity. This wine is drinking really well now and doesn’t possess that tannic backbone that some vintages of Ch. Clarke display. Decant carefully and serve after 30 minutes aeration.
