Winemaker's Notes:

Enticing aromas of ripe black currant, blueberry and cacao introduce this bold, yet harmonious wine. A supple and focused palate reveals round flavors of juicy blackberry, cherry and espresso. Finely knit tannins prolong the elegant, poised finish that is accented by hints of cinnamon, cedar and nutmeg.

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3%Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec
