50% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot. Notably blackish purple. Bright, saturated medium red-ruby. Great aromas of cherry, black raspberry and licorice are lifted by a floral topnote. Supple and suave, with subtle sweetness and good medicinal reserve to the dark berry and violet flavors.
At once lush and lively, with the spine of minerals, acidity and tannins to evolve positively for a decade or more. It is well-made, medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish.
