With strong notes of espresso, black coffee, dark chocolate, smoke and deep red fruits, the wine is lively, round, and vibrant, on the palate, with a bit too much oak in the finish. If the oak better integrates, this will be a better wine. Let it age a bit to allow the wood to better integrate. The wine is a blend of 65% Merlot, with 35% Cabernet Franc. Drink from 2027-2038. 89-91 Pts.
