Winemaker's Notes

85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc

Deep red color with a delicate nose of cherry and plum with a hint of coffee. A rich palate with velvety tannins and a beautiful finish that is both harmonious and fresh. This is an exceptional Bordeaux for the price and it's ready to drink today or can be aged for a few more years. A fantastic value and an excellent choice for experimenting with Bordeaux. This overdelivers for the price!
