Winemaker's Notes:

Open, inviting aromas of dark black fruit blossoms in the glass, underlain with sweet cassis and lovely touches of blueberry, violets, roasted coffee and spicy oak. An abundance of rich, deep black and blue fruit wraps around a core of polished tannins, intermixed with black currant, dark cocoa and spice. A continuum of luscious flavors carries forward through the generous finish, enlivened by crisp acidity and mineral notes. This is a rich, multi-layered Cabernet that balances power with finesse.

Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec
