This wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (71%), with the rest Merlot (18%) and Cabernet Franc. Very pure aromas of black cherry and black currant are followed by cranberry and tart fruit flavors surrounded by a firm structure. It shows a lovely sense of restraint and balance, especially considering the warm region and vintage.
