This is a big, round mouthful of wine fit for the finest filet. Rich blue fruit and pie fruit aromas waft up from the glass. Blackberry and blueberry lead, with some higher toned red fruits on the mid-palate. Cabernet Franc tobacco leaf can barely contain the boisterous sweet fruits. Tannins are sweet, the finish long. Highly Recommended. 92 points.
