Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet
Franc, 1% Merlot
Opening aromas of cassis, cherry, blackberry, earth, lilacs and cedar followed by
ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors with black pepper and vanilla notes. A
complex, full-bodied wine highlighted by lush fruit, and a long, smooth finish.
This wine is the perfect match for filet mignon with a Cabernet reduction sauce,
marinated prime rib, braised beef short ribs, grilled portobello mushrooms with
blue cheese butter, grilled tuna, wild game and hearty pasta dishes or stews. Also a
wonderful wine to pair with dark chocolate desserts like flourless chocolate cake.
While delicious at an early age, this wine has the potential to be cellared for 10-15 years
past the vintage date.
