A blend of 61% Shiraz 24% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon it is loaded. Opaque purple-colored with a sumptuous nose of black fruits and spicy new oak it is explosive on the palate. With an unctuous texture a full-bodied personality and intense black cherry/cassis flavors this is a sensationally layered effort with a 45-second finish. This kind of wine can only be produced in selected areas of California and Australia. It is the antithesis of the polite restrained austere style of Bordeaux for which France is so famous. Look for it to drink well young yet last for 15-20 years. Importer: Dan Philips The Grateful Palate Oxnard CA; tel. (888) 472-5283
