This lush, smooth blend the five traditional Bordeaux grapes — with cabernet sauvignon in the starring role and merlot as its sidekick — plays above its pay grade. Very accessible for a young red wine, it offers ample black cherry, blackberry and raspberry fruit. It has all the elegance and class of many of its pricey Napa Valley peers.
