My Rating 93 Points. 
Price $35.

What an awesome blend of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carignan.

Dark ruby in color with a deep purple rim.

Gorgeous on the nose with wild flowers, cherries, oak, currents, light vanilla, figs, black pepper, blueberries, spices and licorice.

Full-bodied and elegant.

Dry, spicy and fruity on the palate, with figs, cherries, black currants, blueberries, blackberries, oak, dirt, licorice and chocolate.

Long finish with nice, big, round tannins and black pepper.

Very nice, balanced, high quality wine. Will be even better in 3 to 5 years.
Aged for 24 months in French oak.
I had the pleasure to have it with the winemaker.

14% alcohol by volume.
