Intense aromas of red currants, cedar, spice, crushed mint, blue flowers and a whiff of grilled bell pepper lead the nose of this blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The palate delivers dried black cherries, menthol, clove, white pepper and licorice alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2016–2021.
