83% cabernet sauvignon 6% petit verdot 4% merlot 4% cabernet franc 3% malbec aged for 18 months in half-new French oak. Dark opaque red/purple to cherry red at the rim. Nicely restrained the nose is really penetrating... 83% cabernet sauvignon 6% petit verdot 4% merlot 4% cabernet franc 3% malbec aged for 18 months in half-new French oak. Dark opaque red/purple to cherry red at the rim. Nicely restrained the nose is really penetrating without being overwhelming as it offers layered aromas of cassis Bing cherry dry leather sage and a hint of vanilla. With a velvety mouthfeel there is good presence of fruit on the palate with flavors of blackberry and espresso crème. Those expand coating the mouth with smooth tannins. The alcohol carries through this very long finish with notes of pepper and spice.
