    Winemaker's Notes:

    This deeply colored wine shows intense aromas of blackberry syrup, framed by hints of baker's spices, vanilla, licorice and toast. In the mouth, the wine has concentrated bright forward-fruit supported by textural richness and mid-palate volume together with a lengthy dark chocolate-dominated finish.

    75% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep and well-extracted red cherry fruit scents with a soupçon of roasted bread and a veneer of crème brûlée richness added in for good measure, this wine is attractive from the outset. Supple to start on the palate with a plush early texture, it firms up towards the back and makes good use of late-arriving tightness for a bit of grip and up to a half decade of ageworthiness. It can be tried at any point but will soften with rest.
