Natalie's Score: 87/100

A tasty blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37.5% Cabernet Franc, 6.6% Merlot grapes. Medium- to full-bodied with blackberry notes. Smooth with toasty oak.

Mark Britton rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

I found this to be a black cherry bomb on both the nose and the palate with slight hints of vanilla... but only slight. I also found the wine to be overly sour which lingered into a decently long finish. To me this is a food wine, not a sipping wine, but likely wouldn't make my top recommendations list.
