This opens with sweet, compact aromas of raisin and spice. It feels more perky and crisp in the mouth, with a slight acidic cut and flavors of roasted berry, herb and chocolate. The finish is lightly herbal and minty, with peppery spice and plenty of length. A classic Bordeaux blend of roughly one-third each of Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
