A whiff of Graham cracker lends a warm, spicy tone to youthful black cherry and plum flavors in this bold blend that includes small proportions of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Lush and fruity on the palate, it maintains elegance with a vein of granite minerality and grippy, mouthfilling tannins.
