Aromas of black currant, cedar, eucalyptus and dried Mediterranean herbs lead the nose of this full-bodied blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot. On the structured but polished palate, notes of dark chocolate, black pepper and anise accent the juicy black cherry core. It's richly textured and balanced with velvety tannins.
