Winemaker's Notes:

The impression on the nose is immediate with aromas of fresh cherries, cinnamon, plum brandy, mocha chocolate, fennel seed and cigar box. The array of bright nuances continues on the palate with classic "Bordeaux blend" flavors of black currants, black cherries, blueberries and mint. There are also delicate hints of black pepper, brown butter and toasty oak flavors that combine with rich and juicy mouth watering balance continuing through the lengthy finish delivering yet another delicious D2 vintage.

Blend: 55% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
