Winemaker's Notes:

79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot

Bright aromas of boysenberry and cassis combine with mulled spice, orange peel, and cassia bark. The palate is dense, complex and fruitful. Wild blueberry and blackberry mingle with clove and black tea spice, which are seamlessly brought together with integrated tannins that sustain a long and luxurious finish.

About Schramsberg Vineyards:

Focused on Schramsberg's top Chardonnay barrel and tank lots, and aged for seven years prior to release, J. Schram is the winery's signature Brut sparkling wine. Jack and Jamie Davies revived the historic vineyards and cellars in 1965, with a mission to produce California's first world-class sparkling wines. Today, led by their son Hugh, Schramsberg's team continues with this commitment to quality and innovation. Schramsberg also produces the J. Schram Rose, Reserve, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Brut Rose, Cremant Demi-Sec and J. Davies Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
