Winemaker's Notes

A bright aroma of blackcurrant, cigar box and hints of classic Cabernet leafiness combined with subtle spice and chocolate from Shiraz. The palate is fresh and vibrant blackcurrant and berry flavors enriched by an underlying dark cherry and chocolate complexity. The wine finishes with classic Cabernet tannins that are fine and silky.

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth and round, a juicy mouthful of currant and blackberry flavor shaded with tiny hints of roasted meat and cedar. The finish doesn’t quit. Drink now through 2013."
