Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red color with ruby highlights. Inviting lush red fruit aromas of strawberry and red currants with a hint of pepper, all spice, plums and tobacco. This smooth, silky wine coats the palate with intense fruit flavors of cherry and cassis. Sweet oak chimes in to create a beautiful harmony, and fine tannins lengthen the supple texture of this well-balanced, full bodied wine.

Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 3% Syrah, 3% Tempranillo
