A blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot all grown on the McGregor Vineyard estate.
Aromatically, this wine is reminiscent of blackberry, ripe cherries and plums, and has an earthy side filled with leather, smokiness, and graphite. It is medium bodied on the palate and its flavors tilt toward red fruit (cherry and raspberry), smoke, tobacco and a touch of anise. Grippy, fine tannins linger on the tongue with a very subtle background oaky character.
