"A blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon that delivers green-olive, currant and tobacco character. Medium-to full-bodied, silky and refined. Shows focus and beauty. A very calm and serene red. Traditional. Drink or hold."

"Medium to deep ruby in color, the 2016 Belle Cousine is composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has scents of fresh red and black currants, mint chocolate, cedar, dried herbs and graphite with accents of dusty earth. Medium to full-bodied, it’s elegantly styled in the mouth with restrained but bright, minerally fruits, a finely chalky texture and great freshness, finishing long and lifted."
