Wine Notes from Richard:
Opening with an inviting classic Cabernet note of light cherry, the smooth aroma joins rich dark berry and cassis on the palate. A lush texture from oak aging is supported by resolved tannins that lead to a long finish of savory Belgian chocolate with a hint of spice. This is an elegant Bordeaux blend with character that develops with every sip. 79% Cabernet, 13% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot, 3%Merlot
