A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc and 9% Merlot, this powerful and dense selection features fruit-forward notes of blackberry, boysenberry and cassis that are laced with accents of tobacco leaf, licorice, pressed violets and lavender. The structure is full and weighty, with gripping yet fine-grained tannins and a spicy, toasty finish. Drink now–2020.
