Another gorgeous wine from Thomas Rivers Brown. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot that were co-fermented . Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, black cherries, chocolate and baking spices. Lush and rich texture on a medium to full bodied frame. Very concentrated. Black cherry fruit with cassis with underlying minerality. Long finish. Drinking youthfully but very well. This should continue to mature for another five to seven years and be good for another ten to twelve more after that. It will go well with roasts of all kinds.
