Wine.comA great steak wine... -Wine Enthusiast Lovely ruby color. Hearty spicy aromas of ripe Bing cherries, black pepper, and roasted sage, with sweet vanilla and butterscotch overtones. Mouthfilling, rich in texture, with complex, classic varietal character; toasty flavors of baked fruit, dates, carob and pipe tobacco. Very ripe with a little grip and great length. The Cabernet lover's Merlot! 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Smelling of ripeness but not of fruit, this big too stolid offering relies on dried plum notes and quiet hints of dark chocolate for character in both nose and mouth. Its finish, however, is tight and dry, and, overall, the wine delivers more structure than center.
