(1997 Vintage) Its deep! Its dark! Its unmistakably hillside! Chocolate-covered cherries and the enticing nuance of violets create the foundation for the opulent and jammy flavors that follow. Deepened further with each taste by a layer of toasty oak, this wine is also exceptionally bright with an elegant silky finish. Serve with salmon, beef or your favorite chocolate dessert! The blend is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot.
