53% Cabernet Franc; 36% Malbec; 5% Merlot; 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. Deep ruby color. Aromas of violets, blackberry, plum, black cherry, blackberries, blueberry bramble, forest floor, earth, oak, vanilla, all spice, cinnamon. Continuing to the palate, clack currants, mulberry, dark chocolate, black pepper, sandalwood, and cigar box. Intense and complex. Full bodied, the palate is supple and polished revealing a thirst-quenching freshness and approachable tannins on a long, persistent finish. The wines crave food pairing. Well structures with a persistent long finish. Ready to drink now, this turbo charged Jasper will undoubtedly benefit from a few more years in the cellar. This is a very classy Cape Bordeaux blend indeed.
Food pairing: Lazy-aged sirloin, rib-eye, corned beef, pizza topped with sausage bacon, mushrooms and black olives, hard cheese, fire-roasted red peppers, grilled vegetables, feta cheese, brie, and blue cheese.
