Winemaker's Notes:

This blend presents with deep vibrant hues of attractive reds. Aromas are dominated by cassis and black plum, toasted vanillin oak, hints of crème brulee and notes of espresso. Flavors of blackberry and sweet black cherry combine with toasted barrel maturation, hints of anise and a subtle, dusty sense of terroir. This is a finely textured wine with charming structure and style.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 7% Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot
