This wine is a blend of 52% Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Edna Valley Syrah. The wines were fermented and aged separately, then aged in small American oak barrels for 13 months. Blending occurred before bottling to ensure that both varietals were appropriately expressed.
The cool climate Syrah's bright fruit and white pepper blends seamlessly with the Napa Cabernet's plum, berry, and blackberry notes. The wine's soft mouthfeel and smokiness is enhanced by subtle oak.
Enjoy with roasted lamb, grilled steaks or dark
