A blend of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot, this shows ripe black plum, toast and roasted coffee on the nose. The robust palate tastes of prune, graphite and espresso, dusted with tannin. An alcoholic heat is also evident. Enjoy soon to catch the remaining fruit.
