Deep, red purple color; almost black. Bright cherry nose with hints of raspberries and vanilla oak. Medium complexity will continue to unfold as this wine gets more bottle bouquet with time. Rich, deep, and full-bodied on the palate, with a solid core of cherry and raspberry fruit. The Cabernet brings the fruit and structure, the Merlot the mid-palate depth and jamminess, and the Cabernet Franc the color and the high-toned raspberry fruit. The wine is seamless, silky, and round with well-integrated tannins that finish long and clean. Drinkable near-term as well but will need some decanter time, maybe an hour or so. This wine definitely has long-term aging potential, and if you want to lay it down I think it'll continue to improve another 5 to 7 years.
