"Deep and dark aromas of cassis, roasted black cherry, snickerdoodle and gingerbread show on the nose of this blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Petite Verdot and 25% Syrah. It's lush and powerful on the palate, where black-currant paste meets with star anise, nutmeg and violet flavors. Bright acidity lifts it all."
