Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of black currants, boysenberry, caramel, vanilla cream pie, and sage introduce the wine. In the palate are flavors of raspberry jam, cherry cola, milk chocolate, and clove. The mouth feel is elegantly structured with firm but balanced tannins and lots of weight in the palate. The finish has lingering flavors of graham crackers, anise, marshmallow, and black fruit. This wine is a blend of Napa Valley's finest vineyards from Calistoga to Coombsville.
