A brilliant violet hue with warm aromas of chocolate, new wood, muted plum, and light spice. Better in the mouth with lots of smooth buttery wood, plum, and dark cherry flavors. Quite nice but the wine?s tannin and acid are a little high. The blend consists of one third each of Cabernet, Merlot, and Franc that was aged in French oak (50% new) for 20 months.
