Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Syrah.

Nuanced aromas of both red and dark fruits, with blueberries and red cherries playing a leading role. Hints of spice, bay leaf and cocoa add layers of complexity and character. Entering with bright sweet fruit, the palate is rich, full bodied and powerful. Shades of mocha and molasses from the French oak provide a complexity that lingers through the finish.

Made for steak, lamb, duck, or just about anything off the grill.
