Black currant, graphite and meat juice aromas lead the nose on this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. On the forward palate, notes of bitter dark chocolate and sweet spice accent blackberry jam and dried cherries. Tightly woven tannins provide the framework. Drink soon to capture what remains of the fruit richness.
