A traditional Bordeaux-style blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 15% Malbec, 10% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, this is jammy and spicy upfront, boasting assertive fruit notes of boysenberry, mulberry and black plum that are hit by spicy tones of cigar box, leather and allspice. Medium in weight, it offers firm tannins that are partnered with ample acidity, lending lift to the close. Drink now–2021.
