Smoky, minty and spicy on the nose, with plenty of dark fruit and lavish oak. The palate, like the entire wine, is integrated and balanced. Tobacco, herb, molasses and toasty oak flavors blend well with ripe, foresty berry notes. Hard and tannic, but expressive, fruity and clean for a wine that's based mostly on Cabernet Franc.
