The lovely nose of rich briary fruit, licorice, vanilla cream and anise... luscious and lushly textured... very smooth and suave... deep cassis flavors and tobacco accents. Long and dry, the finish shows spicy oak, berries and espresso.
One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
