Bright, medium to dark ruby core with purple highlights around the rim. Aromas are medium-plus intensity and of elegant bright red and black fruit like cherries, cassis and some blackberry perfectly combined with tobacco, pencil lead with subtle vanilla and slight anise spice. On the plate, flavors of bright red cherry, with darker cassis and berry notes at the beginning. Sustained fruit with dusty tobacco, vanilla and licorice in the mid palate. Long, complex finish dominated by bright cherry, with a pleasing combination spice, mineral and herbs.
Blend: 67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot
"Love the nose to this with dark fruits and cigar tobacco on the nose. Hints of milk chocolate. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is a very beautiful wine indeed. Decadent and refined at the same time. Unfiltered. Made from 67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot."
"Offers ripe, rich layers of blackberry, plum and cherry, fanning out nicely and gaining traction on the finish, where the fruit purity of the Cabernet Franc states its case, showcasing the grape in a ripe, expressive manner. Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2024."
