This wine is 44% Cabernet Sauvignon and a whopping 40% Petit Verdot along with 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. It offers alluring aromas of dried flowers and dried leaves, cherry, dark coffee and woodspice. The palate is tightly wound and layered with abundant fruit flavors and highly structured tannins. It needs cellar time before it can be appreciated fully but has the stuffing to get there. Best from 2020 to 2027.
