(2012 Vintage) Ripe and concentrated in the glass with enticing black fruit aromas.This is a supple, expressive wine with layers of black cherry, cassisand wild berry on the palate that linger across a balanced, flavorful finish.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) 5% Merlot; 3% Cabernet Franc; 2% Malbec. Light to medium in volume with medium-ripe red cherry first smells that turn in a slightly narrow direction rather than filling out, this wine is fairly full in palate feel at entry and again drifts a bit in progression. It comes across as clean if a little too tannic for its stuffing but can work with beef or lamb roasts.
