A blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.
This complex wine is both richly concentrated and supremely elegant. The delicate scents of dried flowers, juniper and rosemary mingle with dark fruit aromas and a hint of earthy complexity. The palate explodes with cassis, black cherry and ripe blackberry flavors complemented by subtle layers of smoky tobacco, mocha and spice. Well-integrated, velvety tannins
support the smooth and supple palate with mocha lingering on the finish making this wine a pleasure to drink now, yet it will also benefit from medium to long-term cellaring.
We suggest decanting this wine to allow its full power to unfold. The elegant, complex flavors of The Puzzle make it an exceptional accompaniment to a tender beef fillet or lamb roast.
"It is a beautifully textured, pure wine,... has a deep ruby/purple color and notes of subtle smoke intermixed with underbrush, black currant, cherry, licorice, and lavender. It is medium to full-bodied, has good acidity, and prominent tannins. 92-94 Points."
