This is a blend of 49% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Malbec. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, cherries, slight floral/perfume note. Medium bodied. On the palate, this has nice black cherry and cherry fruit. Good acidity. Nice finish. This drinks well with lighter tannins. Drink over the next five to eight years. It will also work with food. Grilled ribs or burgers would be a nice choice.
