This 100% Napa Valley wine is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot. A deep dark ruby red color introduces intriguing aromas of black currant, leather, toasty oak and an essence of cedar box. This wine delivers a mouthful of flavors with pleasing hints of ripe plum, chocolate, and earthy mint lingering into the aftertaste. Expect this wine to improve in the bottle for several years, continuing to soften and gain further complexity.
