Tasting Notes: This is a Bordeaux-style blend: 72% merlot, 20% cabernet franc, 4% cabernet sauvignon and 4% petit verdot. The palate is soft with elegant tannins and textures. The nose explodes with bright raspberries and wild berries, with some floral tones of lavender. The slightly higher-than-usual acids firmly frame a potpourri of blueberry and sour cherry. The fruit slowly subsides, giving way to exotic spice, and finishes with sweet black licorice.
