Cabernet Sauvignon leads the palate with medium tannins, dark fruit, currants and leather. Malbec and Petit Verdot back it up adding some color and texture, as well as notes of ripe plum, anise and cinnamon. The Cabernet Franc comes across with slightly softer tannins and nice acidity. This Cabernet Sauvignon will age gracefully for 10+ years.
