Ordered off the wine list at Eduardo's in Chicago (Gold Coast) for $80.  A nice find except that it was so young, it really should have been decanted.  It is a blend of 56% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Petit Verdot.  Deep ruby in color with some purple hues, mostly clear and bright.  The nose is nice with black cherries, cherries, tobacco, spice and char.  Full  bodied.  Light to medium tannins.  Good acidity.  On the palate, there is some varietal complexity but this is very tight.  It never fully opened as the bottle was drained.  That said, it was enjoyable with cherries, black cherries, spice, slight plums and char.  Good finish.  This needs a few years and then should drink well for ten to fifteen after that.  It did work well with assorted pizzas.
