    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep, intense ruby red. There is a well-developed bouquet with a rich combination of blackcurrant and the floral nuances associated with delicate undertones of graphite, tar, chocolate and vanilla. Elegant and well structured, this wine has an excellent balance and wonderful persistence.

    Delicious with wild game and fowl, ripe cheeses, and spicy red meats. The wine is unfiltered in order to completely maintain its character, therefore we recommend decanting it before serving.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A blend based on cabernet franc (55 percent) with cabernet sauvignon and carmenere, this is a powerful Triple C with muscular black fruit. The concentration is matched by tannins as strong as steel girders. Despite being six years old, it seems not to have aged at all. Cellar it a few more years to let the wine's complexity develop.

    This wine was a huge hit with my in-laws. I loved it, too! Gorgeous, full-bodied.

    It's near impossible to find a stockier, more potent wine anywhere near this price range. Pine forest aromas mix with dark black cherry, blackberry, clove, cinnamon, and cedar cigar box on the nose, all of which echo into the palate tied to massive, beckoning tannins. One of my favorites already, yet it still has the structure and youth to age plenty more. 94.

    More sedate than I would have expected. Mature and drinkable.
