Comprised of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and 2% Malbec along with 1% each Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. The dark purple color reveals deep aromas of intense black fruits and a supple core of smooth vanilla, briary cassis, violets and roasted chocolate.

Well - apart from having the worst cork experience (hands down), the wine was a little baked. I think it had inadvertently been stored incorrectly or maybe been used as a "prop" bottle for a while before I accidentally got it.
It was like it had prematurely matured! Lot's of dried fruit roll up qualities, which I am unsure if that is a good thing. Dried figs and prunes were the overall impressions. Some earthy spice too...
Overall fairly plain but decent. Will see how this compares to 2nd bottle
