Deep scarlet in color with lovely layered aromas of dark plum, coffee and truffle. Subtle earthy and black currant aromas fill the nose giving terrific complexity. Seamless entry with juicy dark fruit flavors, rich toffee notes and darkly roasted coffee filling the palate. It is elegant in presentation showing firm structure and integrated tannins with a supple rich mouthfeel leading to a long vibrant finish of ripe berries and mocha.

Wine AdvocateThis blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 5% Malbec, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc celebrates the Franciscans' 30th vintage of this proprietary red. Loads of spice box, cassis, blackberry and vanillin jump from the glass of this dense purple wine. It is juicy, round and seductive, although at present, not terribly complex. The finish is slightly short and compact, but this is excellent wine at minimum. Drink it over the next 15 or so years.
