: Direct from winery here
Cost: $28.50
Alcohol: 14.4%
Production: 415 cases
Date Tasted: May 17th, 2013

Tasting Notes: Round, ripe and robust, this blend of 59% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Cabernet Franc offers mixed berry fruit, spicy licorice and light mint aromas enhanced by mild oak and sweet aromatic notes on the soothing and pleasant nose. The refreshing palate follows with mouth-watering acidity, mannered tannins and lots of intense berry fruit supported by oak, sage brush and spice box flavours. Lots to like here with good complexity, balance and ripeness though, a touch of green pepper creeps onto the dry palate. Drink 2013-2017.
