Saint Felicien Cabernet-Merlot is an elegant, complex wine of a deep red ruby color. The nose is rich with Cabernet traces of ripe red currant, eucalyptus and black pepper laced with Merlot jammy red fruit fragrances. Barrel aging adds a delicate touch of vanilla and tobacco. On the palate, an unctuous, sweet entry leads to a full-bodied, complex wine, with smooth, finely grained tannins that expand and linger on the finish.
