This wine is a true Bordeaux-style blend, as it uses all five of that famous region’s grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. My note: This wine was aged for 18 months in French oak, 50% of which was new oak. A silky, seductive brooder with notes of blackberry, plum, mushroom, black raspberry, pencil lead and mesquite smoke. Terrific acidity.

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Petit Verdot Malbec Cabernet Franc food pairings: beef en croule, roasted eggplant, meat fondue, cheddar crown bread, full-flavored meaty casseroles.
