Mocha espresso exotic spices and dark red berries flow effortlessly to the long rich finish. Today the tannins are a bit firm but with another year in bottle this will drink beautifully. In 2009 the percentage of Cabernet Franc is up to 97%. A small addition of 2% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot rounds out the blend. The 2009 was aged in 70% new oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
