($55; 85% cabernet sauvignon with 5% each cab franc, merlot and petit verdot; aged in 50% new barriques, mostly Taransaud) Good deep red-ruby color. Cassis, black cherry, licorice and mint on the nose, with a lavender topnote. Plush, layered and sweet, with dense but vibrant flavors of brambly berries and graphite and attractive floral lift. Very cabernet, and in need of at least a couple of years to absorb its slightly dusty, serious tannins. The crop level here was below 2.2 tons per acre, according to winemaker/co-owner Ben Smith.
