Sweet cherry-scented French oak aromas, with cherry and raspberry patch flavors on the entry. Mid-palate richness interplays with red fruits and loamy earth/herb undertones. Requisite Seghesio balance is present, featuring restrained elegance. Fine, integrated tannins mark the 2008 vintage. A delicious depiction of a Super Tuscan wine crafted in California.
Delicious with beef, lamb and game dishes.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Sangiovese
"This is the winery's highest-end bottling, this year a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, from Alexander Valley and Mount Veeder. It's charming to drink now, with deep, impressively ripe blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate flavors wrapped into soft, thick tannins. The finish is dry. Despite the deliciousness factor, it should hold and develop for at least six years."
