Winemaker's Notes:

Dark black in color, the nose gives aromas of fresh raspberries and ripe, red cherries with notes of vanilla and cocoa powder. Background notes come through over time of roasted coffee bean and a touch of pencil lead. The palate is smooth and rich with ripe, developed tannins giving the wine a full arc in the mouth and giving flavors of blackberry and a hint of smoky, sweet oak.

About Sequoia Grove Vineyards:

Sequoia Grove is located in the prime Rutherford District of the California Napa Valley. Rutherford is renowned for producing some of America's finest quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The 24-acre estate is planted in Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pitit Verdot, Malbec, and Chardonnay vines. These choice vineyards yeilded their first estate bottled Chardonnay in 1980 and Cabernet Sauvignon in 1982 vintage. The Allen family's aim is to perserve the natural character and intensity of that extraordinary fruit from the vineyard. With choice grapes, expertise, and love of the craft, Sequoia Grove continues to live up to a notable reputation for premiere wine production.
