Philip Shaw 2005 No. 17 Merlot-Cabernet Franc-Cabernet Sauvignon Red (Orange)

This shows a bit of Graves-like character, blending tobacco-leaf and smoky-cedary hints with black cherry and cassis fruit. Medium-bodied, this doesn't have the lushness of many Australian wines from warmer regions, yet isn't overly hard. Try in 2010. The blend is 43% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon.
