Chamonix has named their red blend “Troika” which is Russian for a “sleigh pulled by three horses”. This appetising fusion of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon with a splash of Merlot displays a striking mulberry colour while young and expresses aromas redolent of blackberries, sweet ripe cherries, vanilla, cinnamon and other delicious spices. It shows ample structure and is rounded, seamless and full on the palate with tantalising flavours of fruit and berries. A harmonious offering, it also demonstrates good length and longevity as it should achieve its peak at 10 to 15 years.
