This Cabernet Sauvignon—with smaller amounts of Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot—offers satisfying freshness on the palate, with a backbone of singed herb and high-toned cherry. Stuffed with lush blackberry and cassis on the palate, it's an all-around likable wine, aged in both French and American oak, which provide a toasty oak note throughout.
