13.4% alcohol. Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Cabernet Franc 30%, Merlot 20%. Opened and served immediately. Garnet color in the glass, fairly clear hue. Nose of ash, tobacco, berries, florals and a base of wet stones. Flavors of berries and cherries framed over a base of minerals. Medium to bright acidity, medium tannins, medium body. Lovely wine. I'd put this into an 82 Bordeaux blind tasting and defy you to pick it out.
