(45% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot and 19% cabernet franc): Good bright, dark red. Aromatically complex nose offers currant and raspberry complicated by leather and exotic flowers, plus an intrusive whiff of adhesive tape. Juicy and tightly wound, with currant fruit accented by pepper and spice notes. Finishes edgy and ungiving, with a serious tannic spine. I'm not sure where this can go in bottle.
