Cabernet Sauvignon makes up just under two-thirds of this wine with the rest Merlot (29%) along with smidgens of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Aromas of mixed barrel spices are followed by herbs, licorice and fruit leather. The flavors are light and reserved in style, with a spice and licorice-filled finish.
