Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Petite Syrah, 3% Syrah, 2% Cabernet Franc

Big, rich flavors of black cherry, black plum and boysenberry are the signature of this wine. The combination of French and American oak lends subtle layers of vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and baking spices. This balanced wine offers a well-structured mouth-feel and supple tannins that contribute to a long toasty oak finish. This is a round, balanced and inviting Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
