This medium-bodied blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc has aromas of wet soil, black currants, cedar and Mediterranean herbs with a touch of iris. The linear palate offers black cherry and plum accented with black pepper and espresso. It's polished and already accessible. Drink 2014–2018.
