Wine EnthusiastMerlot makes up 45% of this wine, with the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Zinfandel, and Tempranillo. Aromas of green herb, plum, freshly hewn wood and coffee are followed by smooth-drinking fruit and barrel flavors, with the tannins showing a touch of astringency.
