Winemaker's Notes:

Dark, rich and full bodied, this wine displays enticing aromas of currants, ripe plums, bright cherries, and raspberries commingled with hints of tobacco, chocolate, cigar box, oak spice, and vanilla. On the palate, complex flavors of currants, cassis, and cherry are layered within vanilla, tobacco, and licorice. This deeply concentrated wine offers viscosity and crisp acidity with mouth coating tannins that follow through into a long and intense finish. Merlot was blended with the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon to round out the aggressive tannins and to provide more intense cherry fruit. This makes for a more complex and supple wine with a longer finish.
