(cabernet sauvignon with 25% merlot and 5% cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Complex aromas of currant, black cherry, dark raspberry, dark chocolate, graphite, tobacco, espresso, mocha and mint. Supple and sweet on entry, then quite fresh in the middle, with Bordeaux-like flavors of currant, mocha, minerals and tar. Not a large-scaled wine but nicely balanced. Finishes with big, mouthcoating tannins and finishing notes of charry oak and dark chocolate.
