Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (34%) make up the majority of this blend, with the balance equal parts Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Aromas are light and high-toned, with notes of savory herb, cherry and cedar. Elegant in style, the palate is backed by tart acids. The midpalate concentration at times seems a bit wanting, with cranberry flavors lingering on the finish.
