The 2008 growing season was warm which provided good ripening and excellent red, ripe fruit flavors. Care was taken to avoid over-exposure from the direct afternoon sunlight. Rainfall was lower than average, which combined with the
warm temperatures provided healthy grapes, intense fruit flavors and robust tannins.
Blend: 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Syrah, 19% Carmenere, 15% Merlot
