Mostly Merlot (51%) and Cabernet Franc (40%), rounded out by Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, this wine opens with aromas of black cherry and dark fruit alongside floral and barrel--spice accents. The palate is focused and layered, bringing waves of fruit flavors supported by enough structure to go the distance.
