Winemaker's Notes:

Strikingly layered aromas of mocha, cassis, anise, black currants, blueberry and black cherry. Palate: Flavors of blackberry jam and boysenberry, with silken tannins and an elegant finish.

Great with grilled meats, game or on its own.

My Notes:

Known for rich, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignons from the treasured Oakville Appellation and bold Chardonnays from the acclaimed Carneros District, Vine Cliff Winery prides itself on small lots of intensely flavored, hand-made wines.
