This wine is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. It offers notes of mocha, herbs, blackberries, black cherries, vanilla and woodspice. The style is restrained but it's still fully flavored with sumptuous black fruits and a lick of tannins that need some time to settle.
