Merlot and Cabernet Franc make up the majority of this wine, along with pinches of Petit Verdot and Malbec. It commands attention with aromas of flowers, herbs, freshly tilled soil, cherry, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. The palate is outrageously textured with a hypnotic mouthfeel and a finish that sails into the distance. Far from a blockbuster style, it's all about elegance and detail.
