Review

98 Points

Dark ruby with an opaque core, purple reflections and bright narrow rim. Multi-faceted bouquet with black cherry, fine nougat, a hint of noble wood and sweetish spices. Powerful and complex on the palate, the 20 percent Cabernet Franc give a great structure with firm, ripe tannins, finesse and a fresh, chocolaty touch. This is a sturdy food companion with 14.5 percent alcohol by volume, dark nougat on the finish. Excellent ageing potential.
