Number 8 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!
Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!
Blend: 96% Merlot, 3.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 0.5% Cabernet Franc
This complex artisan wine is produced using various barrel types and varietals to offer classic Merlot spice, ripe cherry fruit, and cocoa aromatics which persist on the palate. The balance of wood and black fruits creates a velvety, seductive finish.
"Bursting with blueberry and currant fruit, this zips across the palate with a racy texture and refined tannins. Lingers enticingly with a hint of mocha on the clearheaded finish. Drink now through 2009."
