Ripe, ready to drink and fruity, this is an attractive, balanced wine. Black-currant flavors are given structure by the tannins in this 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc blend from 15 acres. The fresh acidity of the vintage is still there, giving a lively juicy aftertaste. Drink now. An Alliance Bourg member.
