Beautiful, deep ruby core with a lighter ruby/purple rim. Aromas of rich red and black fruit of cherry, ripe strawberry and black currant, framed by subtle vanilla and brown spice with cedar, tobacco and pencil shaving highlights. On the palate, bright red cherry, black currant and a touch of strawberry jam framed by leather, cedar and graphite with background spice of vanilla, cinnamon and just a touch of white pepper. The finish is exceptionally balanced and complex with subtle, lingering fruit that makes you want another sip.
Blend: 64% Cabernet Franc, 36% Merlot
