91 points Wine Enthusiast

Varieties: 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot

Black Cherry & Pepper

Powerful and expressive with aromas of black cherry, fresh cracked pepper and bay leaves, Contrarian is sure to impress. Notes of black currant, blackberry, salted caramel, and sweet herbs are framed by bold tannins that carry through to a long, lingering finish.  Although delightful to drink now, this Right Bank Bordeaux-inspired blend will age beautifully over the next decade.
