89% cabernet sauvignon; 6% merlot; 5% malbec.
Wonderfully exuberant raspberry, cassis and blackberry fruit is complemented with cedar, clove, nutmeg, dark chocolate and vanilla aromas and flavors. An elegant wine with smooth supple tannins, perfect acid balance and a long lingering finish. This wine is a treat in its youth, but the joyfulness of the fruit combined with its ample tannin structure means this wine will reach its zenith 10+ years after release.
"Solid and well-built, this rich and layered red, shows a creamy edge to its dark dried berry, mineral and loamy earth flavors, with notes of tobacco, cedar and black licorice. Full-bodied, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2021. 1,512 cases made."
"Tastes sweet and forward in jammy cherry, blackberry, blueberry and mocha flavors, with plenty of smoky new oak, courtesy of aging 50% new barrels. It's a pleasantly rich wine that's showing its best now."
