This is a blend of 42% Cabernet Franc, 42% Merlot, and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon. Impressive showing. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is tight at first but opens to show black cherries, cherries, chocolate, and brown tobacco. Full bodied. Medium tannins. Wonderful velvety texture. On the palate, this is delicious with black cherries, iodine, blueberries and crushed leaves. Complex. Still not fully mature but getting there. Long finish. No harm opening now, but another five to eight years and this might get a 100 score. Great on its own, it will take big food right now. Maybe Beef Wellington would work nicely. Drink over the next 20 years.
