Our Winemaker experimented with blends for this wine for several years and has created something we feel is more than the sum of its parts. Exhibiting all the spice of our Blue Franc and the wonderful fruit and floral aspects of both the Blue Franc and Cabernet Franc, with the addition of the richness of Merlot, we are absolutely in love with this creation. Raspberry, blueberry, mulberry, lavender, cocoa and spice, with beautiful richness and structure, we think this wine is all there... and more! It is big, dark and brooding. It's Franc 'n' Franc, monstrously good, and yes, it's alive!

Food pairings: grilled beef or lamb
Winemaker's favorite: grilled Ribeye steaks rubbed with ground coffee, allspice, black pepper and salt
