Dan Murphy's Private Bin 1 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc 2006

Another cleanskin ... My usual caveat emptor warning applies.  Weighing in at 14.7%av, this wine had an aroma of chalky dark fruits and spices.  The palate was almost entirely muted with highish acid, and a "hot" note.  Rustic or rough?  76 points.
