A wine of highly distinctive character, achieved in blending estate-grown Bordeaux varietals, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, Octagon’s great prestige rests further on its being created only in fine vintages, and with the most astute selection from the harvest. But it is also the highest expression of our estate’s European derivation and inspiration; a wine of distinction and age worthiness in every incarnation.
Ripe black fruits with hints of smoke and cocoa powder make the nose of this concentrated and polished Bordeaux blend very attractive. In spite of the big, powdery tannins and plenty of power this Bordeaux blend glides across the palate and off into the distance. Another great vintage of this wine. Drink now or age up to ten more years.
