"(aged for 18 months in used American and French oak barrels): Brilliant ruby. Dark berries, cherry pit and cured tobacco on the pungent nose, with a floral element emerging with air. Energetic blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors show very good clarity and a building note of spicecake. The gently sweet, incisive, persistent finish features repeating floral and licorice notes, with supple tannins adding grip."
74% Cabernet and 26% Malbec, it is incredibly complex on the nose with hints of spice, chocolate, caramel and liquorice, it makes me feel like a kid in a candy store when I smell the Good Shepherd. The herbal notes from the Cabernet are layered with waves of wild lavender. The Cabernet and Malbec are together showing great balance along with bright fruit, trademark blueberry, deep herbal notes and lifted spice with a rich and unctuous finish. Sophisticated.
