Aromas of bluish-black fruit, exotic spice and purple flowers lead the nose of this structured blend of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. The firm palate delivers dried black cherry, mint, sage, clove and espresso alongside ample, fine-grained tannins. A licorice note signals the close.
