Full-bodied, with fine tannins and great freshness on the long finish. This is starting to open up now, this is pure and precise with just a hint of fresh herb showing the Cabernet Franc character. This still needs five years. Pull the cork after 2015.

More merlot-dominated aromas of raspberry plum espresso mocha and game. Silky lush and thick with compelling flavors of boysenberry bitter cherry and dark chocolate. Complex smoky lively wine finishing with strong torrefaction notes and lovely subtle persistence. The merlot component here goes through its malolactic fermentation in barriques.
