An inky, dark garnet sits in the glass with bursting aromatics even from afar—ripe blackcurrant and blackberry with hints of Kirsch, Madagascar vanilla, and cigar box. Velvety and rich on entry and through the mid, the wine offers flavors of dark plum, blueberry and notes of fennel, fresh leather, and a subtle minerality. Plush, layered, and dense, the wine finishes with dusty tannins and a lingering touch of black cherry. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot. Aged 15 months in French oak.
