Having been given almost four years of age prior to release, this deep, dense, chewy wine includes 10% Cabernet Franc in the blend. Black fruits like cherry and cassis dominate the palate with good penetration. Aromatic and compelling, this is a wine to cellar for at least another decade, maybe two.
