Blend of 34% Cab Sauv, 32% Merlot, 15% Cab Franc, and 20% Petit Verdot. The medium+ intensity nose feels a bit shy but offers dark currant, cherry, raspberry, oak spices, forest floor, and cassis in a ripe profile. It's full-bodied with smooth, refined tannins that are a touch grippy. It's big and structured with a warm mid-palate. Lovely aromas replays. Mouth-watering acids. Well-balanced overall and excellent finish length. A beauty to drink over the next 20 years. Tasted Oct/2017.
