Winemaker's Notes:

Generous aromas of blackberry and cassis with wisps of violets. Dense, vibrant flavors of polished black fruit, including black currant and blackberries, loaded with deep dark chocolate and a touch of graphite. Concentrated and lush on the palate, with opulent fruit, excellent weight and beautifully integrated oak notes. Bright natural acidity and structured tannins enhance exceptionally long finish. Delicious upon release; optimal cellaring time 5 to 15 years from vintage.

Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 % Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 1% Merlot
