Aromas of juicy boysenberry, black cherry, black plum and blackberry preserves. On the nose, engaging notes of bittersweet chocolate and violet ower. Attractive notes of wild sage, stemming from the addition of Cabernet Franc, that comingle with subtle hints of tobacco and black cardamom. A mouthfeel that is smooth in texture and elegant in acidity. Should age nicely in a proper cellar for 10 - 15 years.
