Merlot (56%) and Cabernet Franc (38%) make up the majority of this wine, with the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. The aromas are all high toned and somewhat locked up, with notes of herb, dried flower, chocolate and cherry. The palate offers a sense of sophistication and restraint, showing a lot of polish.
