"The Red is a blend of 44.5% each of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, with 11% Petit Verdot, aged in French oak for 10 months (30% new, 70% seasoned, which here means at least 7 years old). It comes in at 12.1% alcohol. A bit light in the mid-palate-–it is a modestly priced entrant-–it has some finesse, drinks easy and tastes great. Given the grape blend, not surprisingly, there are some hints of herbs in the background which gives it some character, although the green meanies that grapes like Cabernet Franc can produce are very subtle and restrained here. This drinks pretty nicely for the price. It is probably at or near peak now, but it held pretty well with 90 minutes of aeration, remaining fresh and vibrant, if not showing much concentration. It is not clear how long it will remain at peak, but this is a charming bargain. There were just 109 cases produced."
