The 2015 'Pirouette' is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot with the remainder Petit Verdot and Malbec. The wine is largely sourced from Red Mountain Vineyards. Aged for 22 months in 75% new French oak prior to bottling. The rather intoxicating nose entices with an herbal edge, followed by copious dark fruits and a touch of baking spice. The palate shows a wonderful mouthfeel and texture. Black tea, mint, blueberry compote and mocha flavors all wonderfully combine in the glass. Complex and refined, this is a gorgeous bottling by Long Shadows.
