Refined and beautiful. Made with a splash of Cabernet Franc that gives it a cherry pie filling richness, it's dry and full-bodied, with thick but sweetly ripe tannins framing a Sauvignonesque core of cassis. Finishes with a wonderful, grounding tug of herbs and coffee. A major achievement at this price.
