This wine is a blend of Merlot (37%), Cabernet Franc (31%), Cabernet Sauvignon (19%) and a whopping 13% Petit Verdot. Aromas of flowers, scorched earth, green herb and red fruit lead to concentrated, quite pure fruit and earth flavors. It brings a lovely sense of texture and the tannins add some heft.
