Accented by tones of forest floor and spice, there's a distinctly Old World tone to this bold red wine. A traditional Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it's concentrated with sweet-tart black cherry and plum, but also swathed in slightly vegetal layers of herbs and leaves. Drink now through 2020.
