88% Merlot with 12% Cabernet Franc for added depth. 100% Barrel Aged for 18 months. This wine opens with expressive notes of pie cherry, blackberry, vanilla and anise. Bright on the palate, the fruit shines and the finish is clear and fresh. The fruit is at the forefront with a subtle backbone of baking spice, anise and pencil shavings.
