This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot and reflects the variety of clone and rootstock combinations that we grow on our 39 acres. This 2003 vintage is a youthful, forward and complex Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has an attractive dark ruby color, with aromas of black cherry, cassis, anise and earthy notes. The luscious core of fruit is intense, elegant and finely balanced. Mixed berries, plum, mocha and spice burst on the mid-palate and mesh into the velvety flavors of cocoa, dark currant and maple that make up the finish.
