From Magnum. This is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Verdot and 5% Malbec. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is dominated by Brettanomyces which comes across as a "ripe" barnyard. Some people love this while others are averse. This is a spoilage yeast that will only bloom when the bottle sees warmer temperatures. In addition, there are plums and cassis with some green bell pepper and spice. Full bodied. On the palate, this drinks a bit cleaner. Very earthy with cassis, bell pepper and black cherries. Medium tannins. Long finish.
