With striking power at first glance, it shows its elegant and inviting side soon thereafter. Dominated by 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has great weight and structure. While having equal parts of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, this wine has many layers to it. Pleasant acidity from the Merlot is complimented with the density of the Petit Verdot and given great length and texture from the Cabernet Franc. This wine is a joy to make and equally as fun to blend.
