This is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 5% each of Malbec and Petit Verdot. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose is nice with black cherries and spice. Light tannins. Deep and complex. On the palate, black cherries, cherries and some spice. Nice balance. Nice finish. This seems to be about at peak and should drink well for another five to eight years. A nice match with Lamb Stew.
