A deep and intense red-purple hue can be seen in this wine. Blackcurrants and raspberries characterize the nose, with wood contribution discernible from a whiff of pimento. A smooth, seamless palate, laden with berry fruits. The Cabernet Franc component brings acidity and balance to the lush, luxurious Merlot. A firm structure of fine, well-integrated tannins surround the luscious, opulent core.
