The 2015 'Epinette' is blend of 50% Merlot with 30% Cabernet Franc and the remainder Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot all sourced from the Force Majeure Vineyard. This wine requires extended air contact before the aromas begin to fully express themselves. Aromas of brandy soaked cherry, sagebrush, crème de cassis and coffee grounds all develop nicely in the glass. The mouthfeel is rich and seductive, showing mocha, anise, crème de cassis and black cherry compote flavors. Rich, polished and layered, this is a simply spectacular showing by Force Majerue.
