Winemaker's Notes

"Exemplifies its terroir and vintage with its impeccable balance, and the way the ripe, sophisticated tannins wrap around the fleshy black currant, olive, chocolate and herb flavors. Finishes with some sweetness from charry oak."
-Wine Enthusiast

This powerful Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of Napa Valley's Oakville Region. Loaded with rich, ripe black cherry and plum flavors that are nicely balanced with hints of sweet toasted oak. Small percentages of Cabernet Franc and Merlot are added to enhance the wines depth and complexity.

Alcohol: 13.5%
