    Winemaker's Notes

    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 97 vintage with incredibly soft tannins and a silky smooth middle and finish that is almost chocolate like in texture. The blend consists of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 13% Merlot and 10% Malbec 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.
