It's rare to see a bottle from this appellation at this price and even harder to find one of high quality. This one delivers. A blend of 38% each Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with the rest Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, it shows pleasing aromas of raspberries, black cherries, flowers and plum. There's a silky feel to the chocolaty flavors that linger on the finish.
