Winemaker's Notes

A Bordeaux blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Nice crimson color and lovely aromas of cherry with just a hint of vanilla. Well-rounded and fleshy in the mouth, with well-balanced tannins. A long, silky finish.

I am not a connoisseur or anything, in fact, I am very new to wines but this one is fabulous. Had the opprtunity to share this bottle with a friend over some gossip & the Wii and we both loved this one!
