Ultra smoky and baked, with aromas of campfire, berry marmalade and fine herbs. At 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, this is rich but balanced. It shows a cushioned mouthfeel and lively flavors of black cherry, cola, chocolate and even some cumin. Finishes roasted and firm, with a backbone of tannins. Drink now through 2011.
