Merlot makes up over half of this wine, with the balance Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and other varieties. The aromas are brooding, with high-toned notes of herb, cherry, vanilla, chocolate and spice. The flavors show a mix of fruit and barrel, with the tannins seeming a bit dry. Coffee and vanilla notes persist on the finish.
