Winemaker's Notes:

The use of Sonoma Valley hillside vineyards gives particular structure to this Cabernet Sauvignon. This Cabernet has very rich aromas of cassis, black cherries, and plums with nuances of toasty oak in the background. On the palate the wine shows its underlying depth of dark fruit. It is silky in texture with almost a sweet impression that lingers into a plethora of black fruits, cassis, and a nuance of dark chocolate on the finish.

The wine is easily approachable and a pleasure to drink now. It is a flavorful accompaniment to any fine meal.

Varietal Composition: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc
