Winemaker's Notes:

A lovely ruby color with aromas of boysenberry and currant, vanilla and earthy hints of forest floor. A full-bodied wine with a rich tannins. Big, delicious flavors of boysenberry, toasty caramel and cranberry. Well-balanced, perfect to drink now or can age nicely for 4 to 5 years. Our Cabernet grapes come from several different micro-climates within the Napa Valley - allowing diversity in blending, leading to a wine of greater complexity. It also gives consistency in style from vintage to vintage.
