Composed of 40% Cab Sauv, 30% Merlot and 30% Cab Franc, this is a rich and robust Bordeaux-style blend with assertive notes of tanned leather and cigar box among the expected boysenberry and black currant fruit core. Firm tannins grip the mouth and linger through the long mocha-flavored finish. Drink now–2015.
