Compost and pencil shaving scents meet reductive mushroom-like notes on the nose of this grippy, full-bodied wine that includes small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Bittersweet chocolate rounds out the finish.
Raspberry dusted with cocoa opens to floral cedar and a hint of mocha. The raspberry cocoa core continues on the palate with notes of toasted spice. Large framed for Cabernet Franc but well-balanced.
