Robust, yet intriguing, this red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc has just the right amount of fruit, oak and acidity to remain balanced. On the palate, flavors of black cherry and black plum are interwoven with notes of coffee bean and dried herbs. While toasty oak nuances are prominently displayed, they are well-integrated and complementary, rather than overpowering. Delicious on its own, this wine would also be a delightful accompaniment for herb-crusted leg of lamb.
