Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a blend of the four classic Bordeaux varieties. This blend presents calmness to the tannic signature commonly associated with the Howell Mountain appellation. On the palate, enjoy classic Howell Mountain flavors of blackberry, shale, earth, rosemary and espresso bean.

Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petite Verdot
