The blend consists of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is aged for 16 months in French oak barriques, 75% of which are new using the OXOLINE system to minimize stirring. The grapes were harvested from September 23 to October 3. The 2019 Clinet is opaque purple-black in color, bursting from the glass with bold scents of ripe black plum, blackberry and blueberry with an undertone of raspberry, licorice and chocolate. The taste is rich, full and it has velvety tannins and just enough freshness, with a long aftertaste.
