A certified organic blend of 90% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 5% Tannat matured for 20 months in foudres and 25% new French oak barrels. Impenetrable inky black colour with a very deep dark red black hue. Pronounced blackcurrant, blueberry and liquorice aromas intermix with scorched earth, dried herbs and spicy cedar. Juicy blackcurrant, blueberry and liquorice fruits show good flesh across the mid weighted palate with some scorched earth, dried herb and spice characters lying underneath. Finishes with good freshness, fine grained tannins and an energetically refined blueberry led aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews…..
This solid wine with its 90% Malbec is powerfully juicy and rich. The estate wine at Cèdre, it has considerable potential. A dense structure is balanced by spicy flavors and black fruits. Drink from 2026. Organic.
