This exquisite wine captivates with aromas of strawberry, blackcurrant, floral, and mint, complemented by hints of coffee, graphite, and cassis that add depth. Its elegant tannins linger on the palate, making it an excellent match for hearty meats such as our Grilled Tomahawk steak with creamy mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.

Flamingo’s Petit Caro is a sophisticated gift choice, perfect for both special occasions and everyday indulgences.

Legende Bordeaux Rouge 2019

Château Canon 2015

A bottle of Château Canon 2015 epitomizes sophistication, offering a whisper of elegance rather than a display of brute force.
