Winemaker's Notes:

Wonderful harmony, intensity and concentration of cherry-vanilla, rose petal and cassis are found in the aroma. On the palate juicy blackberry, red currant and black cherry notes are well balanced and rich without being overpowering. Ripe and supple tannins finish long and lingering. This is a beautiful wine that will only improve over the next few years.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon
14% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc
2% Petit Verdot
