Year in and year out, this ranks as a fine blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. Look for a comported nose with blackberry, cassis and earth tones. The palate is layered and chewy, with deep, dense flavors of blackberry, licorice, spice and herb. Toasty and long on the finish; drink now–2016.
