A blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 51% Merlot and
Excellent garnet-purple in color; this wine has a nice, sweet vanilla toast with creamy raspberry, black cherry, blackberry, and dried blueberry fruit, along with just a hint of herbs, clove spice, and earthiness. Black cherry and blackberry fruit continue on palate with the sweet vanilla toast rounding out mid-palate. The finish is long with just enough acid and tannin to let one know this is a bit more serious and longer-lived wine.
The slightly sweet mid-palate and brilliant fruit make this wine a joy to drink now. But, the balanced acidity and structure should definitely allow this wine to improve over the next two to six years.
