"An estate grown cabernet (56%) merlot (44%) blend, from the winery whose efforts spearheaded the successful campaign to certify Red Mountain as an AVA. Big, dark and toasty, with roasted flavors, like black cherries soaked in bourbon, augmented with pepper and barrel spice. Flavorful and balanced, with pretty scents of orange peel."
An opulent nose showcases aromas of currants, vanilla and chocolate. A wave of dried sage introduces flavors of ripe cherries and wild blackberry fruit. The mouthfeel is luscious with smooth, well-integrated tannins.
