This is a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is expressive with cassis, black cherries, dark chocolate and slight coffee. Full bodied. Rich texture with great balance. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is complex and layered. Flavors of cassis, black cherries and chocolate with underlying char. Long finish. This is drinking fantastic right now but should still improve over the next five to ten years. It should drink well for twenty more years after that. Great on its own, this will need bigger foods to go with it. Roasted meats or veggies will work well.
