This classic Cabernet blend from the foothills of Napa Valley is defined by power and grace. The 2008 blend remains predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Petit Verdot added for concentrated flavors and a touch of Malbec introduced for further weight, complimented by silky Merlot and Cabernet Franc spice. The result is an intense, deeply satisfying, fullbodied wine that will reward with further bottle age.
The aroma has a delicious mélange of dark black berries, dark-roast espresso and hints of anisette opening up to reveal underlying warm mineral notes, cassis, violets and spice. Signature black and red fruit flows freely across the palate, entwined with more espresso, dark chocolate, and touches of violet and licorice. A warm mineral component echoes the wine's foothills heritage. Firm, supple tannins along the base of the wine
keep the luscious fruit aloft through a generous finish, bolstered by crisp acidity. A dense, racy and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that is
the perfect match for a ribeye.
