Earthy aromas of forest floor, tobacco leaf and leather mingle harmoniously with the black-fruit core of this Merlot-based blend, with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Syrah and 7% Petit Verdot. The medium-weight palate boasts fruit-skin flavors of plum, cassis and berry, while accents of tobacco, balsamic herbs and pepper unfold on thelingering finish. Drink now–2016.
