Bright raspberry scents, with a fresh and lifted aspect that adds to its immediate appeal. The blend includes 10% Cab Franc and 10% Cab Sauvignon, a lot of complexity in an $8 wine. This is substantial, layered, with a plummy, herbal, fairly tannic middle and plenty of weight in the follow-through.
