Bright ruby-red. Sexy spicy oak lifts aromas of currant, mulberry, menthol and chocolate. Plush, fine-grained and sweet, combining an almost chocolatey ripeness with perfectly integrated acidity and lovely dried herb lift. Savory, structured and subtly intense; balanced already but built for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. A wonderfully pure and delineated blend with a sophisticated seamless texture, terrific complexity and lovely floral lift.

The 2014 Faithful Hound is a blend of 32% Cabernet Franc, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 16% Malbec and 7% Petit Verdot. It has a joyful and very pure bouquet with red cherry and red plum scents, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied, well balanced with grainy tannin, good backbone with a satisfying tobacco-edged finish. This is worth investigating and it has the substance to age well in bottle.
