Softened by the addition of 18% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, this wine is juicy and expressive in a twinge of dark bark, tobacco and leather. Luscious and richly satisfying in berry goodness, it's seamless in tannin and texture, with plenty of complexity, as well as lovely accents of black pepper.
