This Bordeaux-style blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc is surprisingly open and accessible now, with forward aromas and flavors of ripe brambly berry, forest, fresh tobacco leaf and a touch of espresso bean. The fine tannins lend an approachable texture to the wine, with a rich, jammy black-fruit flavor lingering on the medium-length finish.
