Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage)

Pronounced blackberry and blueberry on the nose mingle with cedar spice and a hint of wood, while notes of bramble fruit, cherry, vanilla and dried herbs please the palate.

Dark and seductive in the glass, this classic Bordeaux-style blend manages to be approachable yet complex. Pronounced blackberry and blueberry on the nose mingle with cedar spice and a hint of wood, while notes of bramble fruit, cherry, vanilla and dried herbs please the palate. This wine consists primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon, with generous portions of Malbec and Petite Verdot to add depth to the tannic profile and color, and to enhance richness mid-palate. Cabernet Franc and Merlot also are in the blend.

The multidimensional character of this blend is well-suited for rich and robust foods. Try it with rosemary lamb chops with Swiss chard or pizza with Italian sausage. Or serve with a simple appetizer such as fig and blue cheese crostini.

Varietal Composition:
45% Cabernet Sauvignon
29% Merlot
12% Cabernet Franc
11% Malbec
3% Petit Verdot

Well-ripened cherries, this nicely stuffed youngster shows plenty of depth and is firmed up by nominal finishing tannins.
