"Blended of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 10% Malbec and 9% Petit Verdot, the 2008 Cabernet Blend was matured 21 months in French oak, 35% new. With a medium to deep garnet/purple color, it reveals pretty aromas of cassis, eucalyptus, chocolate mints, pencil shavings and cloves. It is well structured with medium to firm very fine tannins and medium-high acidity. With a full body, it has a generous amount of fruit lingering into the long finish. Consider drinking this wine from 2013 and it should continue to evolve and give pleasure to 2022+."
