Our Review

This Bordeaux-style blend contains small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It's a bit dilute on the nose, and there's a suggestion of dried herbs—sounds like spring flowers and grass—but the fruit is all there. It's a well-made, well-made red wine, with pleasing strawberry, cherry and blackberry flavors.
