"Plenty of currant and herb character with dried strawberry and hints of chocolate. Full-bodied, tight and focused. Plush tannins, yet reserved and focused. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 25% cabernet franc, 7% syrah, 6% merlot and 2% malbec. Drink or hold."

Tasting Notes

Beautiful notes of strawberry, pureed raspberry, currants, plum jam and spice. Hints of vanilla bean, macerated berries and cocoa powder carry the palate.
