A minty, tomato-leafy Cabernet with 12% Petit Verdot and 3% Merlot, this is an accessible, round-tannin wine, elegant and tempting in cardamom spice. The flavors ping pong between dark chocolate and dark cherries, with enough density to pair well with filet mignon and enough high-toned acidity to drink before that steak is done.
