Deep ruby red in color. Intense on the nose with notes of black pepper and raspberries. Robust, full bodied with rich, jammy tannins. A perfect wine to pair with roasts, fatty meats, aged cheeses and savory pasta dishes. Serve at 60 - 64°F.
70% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine dot com reference to a 90 point Parker score for this wine is mistaken. My one star review is not for the wine, but for wine dot com's incorrectly indicating that Parker scored this wine a 90. The 90 point Parker review wine dot com quotes is actually for Scarbolo's Sauvignon Blanc (which is a white wine), NOT for this wine, which is 70/30 blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It's obvious the Parker review is for a white wine: "spring blossom and verbena running through flavors of kumquat, white peach," etc. I have purchased this wine, and if wine dot com corrects the information it provides about this wine, I will give the wine an actual score.
