A bold blend of 69% Cabernet Franc, 23% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. Hints of smoky oak and moerate tannin are some of the characteristics of this Bordeaux style blend. Subtle fruit and spice add to the complexity : dried cherries, cocoa, and bright raspberry. Aged 18 months in French and American oak barrels for a smooth and lingering finish.
