This would be a Bordeaux-inspired blend if not for the 5% Petite Sirah and 1% Zinfandel contained within, the odd balls amongst the 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc. Together they combine for a leathery experience marked by aromas of baked bread, clove and lavender, the wine juicy and soft.
