Earthy, cocoa, anise, cassis and a hint of dried herbs and cola. There is a refreshing hint of brine, menthol and floral perfume with a touch of vanilla. A soft entry of flavorful black fruits, cola, and licorice leads into a full mid-palate and very long supple finish. Blend: 26% Merlot 48% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Syrah 12% Cabernet Franc 4% Malbec.
