A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot, this wine is a terroir-bomb with vibrant, lively fruit on the nose, and that definitive dirty, dry, dusty French palate just abound with structure - which everyone on this list knows how much I LOVE structure in my wines - and it has the ability to age gracefully over the next decade.
Beautifully garnet on the pour with a deep brick red rim, the nose is very lively with red-to-black fruits, dark chocolate shavings, cherry-coffee accents and crushed vanilla blossoms. Full bodied on entry, fleshing out perfectly across the palate, the complex structure is very terroir-driven with red clay pot, fresh turned soils, and a meaty saline all framed by velvety tannins and medium blackberry-flecked acidity. The finish is dry, and with decent length, still showing a bit of youth, framing largely around vanilla and barrel spices with lots more to come in the future.
