Van Westen V
This Bordeaux blend has created a complex and intense wine not only to be enjoyed now but is also built to age. A complex and elegant wine with red currant, cassis and mulberry fruit intertwined with interesting baking spice, burlap, orange zest, violet and balsamic reduction on the nose. The full bodied palate is very savoury with earth, dried sage and rosemary, black olive and paprika that opens up to blueberry and dried fig. A wine with great length and intensity which pairs beautifully now with lamb or game meats but the tannins, acidity, and the long finish will reward you by cellaring 5+ years.
49% Merlot, 17% Cab Franc, 16% Malbec, 9% Cab Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot
