This wine is drinking beautifully with concentrated and ripe black cherry, creme de cassis, mulberry, plum, purple fig, violet, black licorice, anise, graphite, pencil shavings, sandalwood, vanilla bean, clove, leather, forest floor, and tobacco notes.
It has an excellent balance of primary, secondary and tertiary characteristics.
On the palate, it has a silky texture and fine-grained tannins. Acidity adds lift. High alcohol contributes to the full body and robust mouthfeel.
It’s made with 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. — a month ago
