(made from 61% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, 12% petit verdot, 10% syrah and 2% cabernet franc): Bright purple. Fresh, clove-accented red berry and cherry aromas show an energetic, sharply focused personality. Youthful, deep redcurrant and cherry-vanilla flavors pick up sweetness with air. Quite open, with no rough edges. Finishes with good breadth and length, leaving a subtle smoky note behind.
