Aromas of black and blue fruit with some earthy and cedar hints precede a generous medium- to full-bodied palate that continues to open in the glass with cherry, cassis and blackberry notes supported by supple, elegant tannins.
This flagship blend of Cabernet Franc (36%) Merlot (35%) Cabernet Sauvignon (23%) Petit Verdot (4%) and Malbec (2%) is from one of the best vintages on record. It yields cherry, plum and earthy notes on top with blue and black berry fruits leading to a rounded and plush palate of blackberry and cassis with mineral undertones, barrel spice and black pepper. Wrapped in structured, well-integrated tannins though a lingering finish.
