Winemaker's Notes:

Roasted coffee beans and cherry cola aromas. On the palate, bright ripe fruits abound. Sweet plum, cherry and blackberry pie come to mind, layered with vanilla, milk chocolate and rich, velvety tannins.

Blend: 81% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Cabernet Franc

My Notes:
