Individual vineyard lots were fermented and aged separately and then prior to bottling the lots were blended together to create a complex and balanced wine. Malbec enhanced the anise spice aromas while adding richness to the mid-palate. The 4% of Merlot offers bright fruit and pastry characteristics to the nose. This artisan blending results in a Cabernet Sauvignon with rich aromas and flavors of cherry cobbler, baking spices, cedar, and clove, followed with a voluptuous mouth feel yielding a mouthwatering finish. The vibrant fruit and balanced acidity found in this wine makes a perfect match for a wide range of foods including prime rib or possibly a boysenberry cheesecake.
