50% cab, 25% cab franc, 20% merlot, 5% malbec. Very nice attack - smooth and balanced. The wine is very rich and soft, with round cedar flavors and a very nice finish.
Mint, eucalyptus and dark berry create a noble nose on this wine. Rich red and black fruit on the palate. It's still velvety and rich. Drinking very nicely. Finishes on a bay leaf and spice note. 90 pts. 8/12/11 at Winery
