Alluviale Cabernet/Merlot/Franc 2003

Good deep red robe. Big nose of fruit, but elegant with it, red fruits and berries, florals and violets, plums and blackberries, very good. Plums, blackberries, blackcurrants and some lovely smokiness and cedar. Long, long finish with fruit lingering. Good structure and smooth tannins.
