Sir Charles Henry Darling gave his name to the town of Darling and now this delightful Bordeaux-style blend is named after him, too. The wine is a classic mix of three noble varieties, each adding their own characteristics. On the nose are aromas of dark chocolate, ripe berries and vanilla. The supple softness of the Merlot portion joins with the structure and refreshing nature of the Petit Verdot, while the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc combine to lend complexity. Drink this wine up to 7 years from vintage with serious red meat dishes, particularly steak, venison and lamb.
