Winemaker's Notes

Complex aromas and flavors of bright cherry, coffee, vanilla and mint, with hints of dried herbs and spice. Tannins are firm. Enjoy now through 2007. The art of blending played an important role in creating this wine. Blending is used to develop complexity by adding layers of complementary flavors. Cooler growing areas provide complex herb and mint notes, while Petit Verdot and Cabernet from the Dunnigan Hills contribute bright, fresh fruit and rich tannins.
