Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 76% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc

Eager to please with a friendly nose of sweet black cherries, anise and the perfume of iris blossoms. Boysenberry and pomegranate flavors dominate, with toasty and earthy notes fleshing out into a creamy mid-palate. The lingering, chalky finish is complemented by very fine and elegant tannins.

Food pairings: This wine begs for spaghetti, pizza, lasagna and sharp cheeses with a little bite.

My Notes:
