Fairly priced for what the consumer gets, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc (15.1% alcohol) exhibits notes of forest floor, graphite, blackcurrant, blackberry fruit and spring flowers followed by a full-bodied, unctuously textured, deep, rich pure wine to drink over the next 10-15+ years."

Watching the Masters in November. What planet am I on?? As for the wine, very approachable. I have had other vintages but I don’t remember being so soft so young. Happy Friday Eve! Stay safe. It’s getting nasty out there again.
