Winemaker's Notes:

Aged for 19 months in French and American oak barrels, this exceptional blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot exhibits rich and concentrated flavors of blackberry, cassis and mint married with aromas of black cherries and vanilla. A big wine worth cellaring for 5 to 10 years minimum.
My Notes:
