If Bordeaux left bank and Loire Cabernet Franc had a baby this would be it. An elegant expression of Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Franc (20%), Merlot (34%)and Petit Verdot (2%). A true Claret color of ruby red, the nose shows elegant and fresh notes of red tree fruits, a toast of spice and mint. The palate is precise and pure, with a fine density in the core of the wine's medium+ body and structure.
