Juicy black berry and boysenberry fruits are upfront on the nose of this Bordeaux-style blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 16% Merlot, 14% Malbec and 9% Petit Verdot. Glimmers of licorice, black pepper and cigar box add depth to the medium-weight palate, while fine yet structured tannins lend length and texture to the ripe-fruited finish. Drink now–2019.
