Richly textured, our Cabernet blend is bursting with blackberry, currant and black cherry flavors followed by cinnamon and licorice overtones. The Cabernet Franc presence is noted with a lingering blueberry flavor supported with hints of creamy oak. This wine is very much like the best of the 97 vintage with incredibly soft tannins and a silky smooth middle and finish that is almost chocolate like in texture. The blend consists of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc and 18% Merlot with all of the fruit coming from the Napa Valley. We took our grapes primarily from Oakville using a combination of hillside and valley floor fruit.
I love this wine it's been a while since I've had it I'll have to pick up another one and post some better tags. I believe the Artistry is todays version and I hear it's just as good.
