Winemaker's Notes

Intense black fruit, and a seductive, plush texture. This is a wine to pair with roasted leg of lamb or, if you can resist, one that will develop gracefully in the cellar for many years to come.

Critical Acclaim

"This is plump, juicy cabernet (89 percent sauvignon, 11 percent franc) with the fresh tobacco-scented fruit these benchland vineyards can give. It's vinous and elegant, the herbal spice creating an intriguing tension in the finish, lasting alongside red berry flavors. A clean Napa Valley cabernet to pair with lamb."
