A blend of 65 % Merlot, 35 % Cabernet-Sauvignon. Ages 12 months in oak barrels, a 1/3 of which is new. Dense, oaky blackberry and black cherry nose. Rich and full-bodied, but has ample fruit and some chocolaty tannins. A big wine but not ungainly. Solid and has potential. Good length, chewy finish.
