This is a Finger Lakes red.  It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, and 17% Merlot.  The label lists 13% abv. Purple in color, ruby at the rim.  The nose has black cherries, cigar box, dust and sandalwood.  Blind, I would guess Bordeaux.  On the nose, this is soft and drinking well.  Black cherries with underlying funk/earthiness.  Good acidity.  Slight heat on the finish.  This appears to be drinking at the young side of peak.  It isn't likely to get better but should stay at this level for another five to seven years.  It will work well with stews and casseroles.
