A soft, rich, refined Merlot dominant blend from an industry leader and red wine specialist. Expect notes of aniseed and liquorice with raspberry, cherry and cranberry lending freshness and acidity.

12 months in French and American oak to soften and season the wine. Drink now, or lay down for up to 15 years.

The Z exudes all the finesse and power that makes Bordeaux style wines so coveted and unique.

This wine is a very versatile food pairing wine due to its great acidity and weight. It works exceptionally well with very fine spicy foods. Its aromas of mulberries and blueberries perfectly complements rich fish, lamb, duck, beef and poultry.
