Sort of a junior Cain Five, a Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc blend with a dash of Syrah. Very rich and provocative. There's a ton of lush cassis fruit but even with just 5 percent Syrah, a strong white pepper note, and even a little bit of leather. Very dry, pretty oaky, with the best tannins money can buy, this wine has elegance and finesse. What it needs is substance.
