Graphite, black currants, mocha and spice aromas emerge from the glass. Made with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the rich, smooth palate doles out ripe red cherry, crushed black raspberry, dark chocolate, espresso and licorice wrapped in soft, silky tannins. Drink through 2019.
