Winemaker's Notes:

A classically styled Bordeaux blend with an intense bouquet of cocoa, spicy earth, coffee and just a hint of green tea. Flavors of blackcurrant, ripe blackberries and subtle toasty notes from French Oak aging support the soft but rich tannins. A pleasant, sophisticated Napa Valley wine ready to drink now or to cellar for future enjoyment.
My Notes:
