Pure and delicious with crushed berries, flowers and hints of fresh almonds. Medium to full body and very integrated tannins that melt into the wine. Fresh finish. Refined for the vintage.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 La Cabanne (composed of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc) opens with some cedar/oaky overtones, giving way to a fragrant core of warm black cherries, fresh black plums and blueberry preserves with sparks of spearmint, powdered cinnamon, dried roses and redcurrant jelly. Full-bodied with taut, muscular black and blue fruits, it has a firm line of rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.

A blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Château La Cabanne has an exotic bouquet of plums, black cherries, candied violets, and orange peel. Medium to full-bodied, with good acidity and terrific balance, it shows the elegant side to the vintage and will keep for 10-15 years.
