Wine Description

(2002 Vintage) The rich flavors in this wine come not only from the Cabernet Sauvignon itself, but also from the addition of other red varietals: 9% Cabernet Franc for mouthfeel, 7% Merlot for added structure and complexity, 2% Syrah for richness and 1% Lemberger for fruit and spice. The resulting wine has cherry, cranberry and vanilla aromas and flavors integrated with toasty oak. A slight bell pepper note in the background adds complexity. The texture is soft and velvety, with nice oak, vanilla and clove note...
