Highly aromatic with a complex array of peppery, red and blackberry, currant, cassis, and hints of graphite aromas. It's medium-full bodied, lean, and structured on the palate with very nicely balanced aroma replays. Fresh acids are nicely balanced. Elegant, firm tannins. Long, peppery finish. Enjoy over the next decade. 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Tasted Oct/2018.
