Winemaker's Notes:

Th is blend illustrates with tremendous hues of purples and reds. Aromas of blackberry and black plum integrate with tight smoky oak, a note of anise and dark molassas. Flavors of blackberry and cassis follow with a dusty sense of terroir, bright vanillin oak and a structured espresso finish. Th is is an integrated blend with length, structure, and style.

Blend: 66% Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 6% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc
