TASTING NOTES: Dark ruby core with bluish-black secondary hue; aromatic and complex with ripe red cherry, black currant and a little berry with vanilla, cinnamon and licorice spice, cedar and graphite notes, oak, leather, dried autumn leaves and a minty hint of camphor. Moderate plus to full bodied, dry, with ripe cherry and cassis mixed with baking spice on entry joined by cedar and oak on the mid-palate with complex savory, herbal elements. The finish is long, balanced and clean, with returning red and black fruit
INFO: This blend of 57% Merlot and 43% Cabernet Franc begins quite subtly on the nose, with aromas of berry, mint and oak. Polished tannins frame the palate, where flavors of black cherry, espresso bean and dried mint arise.
