A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon 22% Merlot 4% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot picked between 15th to 29th September and aged in 40% new oak the Gloria 2011 has an intense bouquet of red and black fruit mixed with a ferrous scent that emerges only with 5-7 minutes aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins. It is a little pinched at the moment although it should blossom during its élevage as there is certainly good substance on the linear finish that exhibits a gentle grip. Fine. Tasted April 2012.

A wine with juicy blueberry and milk chocolate character. Medium to full body with velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Round textured and satisfying.

Aged 18 months in 40% new oak barrels. Dark purple almost blue fruit on the nose are complemented by aromas of cigar box bittersweet chocolate and a touch of oak. More elegant than powerful the tannins are fine and almost silky while staying in balance with the fruit on the nose. Vibrant acidity keeps the wine bright through the finish. Give this 5-8 years to come together and enjoy through 2025.
