Though not labeled as such, this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%), Merlot (18%) and Cabernet Franc (8%). Coming from top sites Discovery, Quintessence, Seven Hills, The Benches, Figgins, Klipsun and Champoux, there's a lot of sophistication in the aromas, with notes of dried herb, leaf, graphite, anise, spice and cherry providing appeal. The flavors are intense and full, showing an exquisite sense of balance and intensity. It keeps you coming back for more.
