A stylish red with subtle and complex aromas and flavors of spice, meat, berry and bark. Full body, bright and fresh. Shows tension and beauty. Fascinating. This is a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 30% cabernet franc and 20% syrah.

Opaque ruby. Ripe blueberry, cherry and cassis on the powerful nose, joined by a smoky nuance and a hint of vanilla as the wine opens up. Smooth, smoky and concentrated, offering black and blue fruit flavors complemented by suggestions of cracked pepper, mocha and licorice. Finishes sweet and impressively long, with a spicy jolt of cracked pepper, repeating smokiness and supple tannins coming in late.

Earthy, stalky aromas of tomato, olive and savory, meaty berry fruits set up a chewy, dense palate. Blackberry, cassis and mixed-spice flavors finish with chocolate and clove notes. This Cabernet-led blend is bold, oaky, rustic and powerful.
