Deep ruby. Clean notes of blackberry jam, mocha, vanilla cream and black currant explode from the glass. Full bodied, round and plush on the palate. Sublime black cherry preserves greet the senses with ample dark cocoa, maple syrup and hints of sagebrush. Tannins and acids are perfectly integrated in this sleek and classy blend. Finishing with sweet black and blue fruit, crisp freshness and smooth structure. Cabernet dominated with aromatic Cabernet Franc and lush Merlot in support. Mystique always delivers and the 2018 is a showstopper. Drink now through 2030.
