Captivating, complete, sophisticated.
Painted Rock's premium red is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. This vintage is 31%, 21%, 11%, 16%, 19% respectively. It is a complete and ponderous wine, with earthy and savoury characters. The aromas are a fusion of blackened spices, grilling meat, pencil shavings and leather, balanced with the freshness of black currents and plums. A melange of sweet cassis, black cherry and forest berry flavours meld with spice and vanilla on the palate. The tannins are powdery, there is impressive concentration, complexity and sophistication in this wine.
Open now and decant, or hold for up to 10 years to allow it to coalesce more.
