Easily deserves its high score due to the ripe cassis flavors and near-perfect tannins. Caresses and seduces the palate with the soft velvety intensity of a fine liqueur. Yet some tough tannins and firm acidity make for a scour on the palate. May or may not age; hard to tell. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
