This 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon wine is ripe and soft with attractive acidity and juicy red berry flavors. While there are tannins, they are subservient to the fruit, which suggests that the wine will develop quickly. The wine appeared in volumes 1 and 27 of Tadashi Agi's manga series, Les Gouttes de Dieu (Drops of God). Drink from 2016.
