This is a big, mountain-grown blend that needs time to open—think about decanting it first. A mix of 50% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, this has a fruity, delicious nose that's slightly peppery. The palate is surrounded by red and blue fruit and tanker-size tannins, with a plush, cinnamon-kissed finish.
