"I love this wine for the effortless way it charms. Everything's restrained, from the currant and cherry flavors to the oak, while the softly sweet tannins create a smooth, mellow mouthfeel. It's a feminine Cab that will support, not compete with, the best foods."
Fom the magnificant 2001 vintage, this wine is made from lots selected for their complexity of flavors and supple tannins. The blend includes Merlot to help tame tannins, Cabernet Franc for its leafy aromatic contributions and Petit Verdot for its intense color and black fruit flavors. Round and harmonious in its youth, this wine will reward a few years of cellaring with nuances of aromna that only time in the bottle provides.
