(From 2009 Vintage) Dark fruits, rich color and savory spices highlight the first impression of this wine. On the palate, it shows brightness with a touch of earthiness, caramel and black pepper. It has good density and richness through the finish.
Lush aromas fill your glass with black currant, boysenberries, and bing cherries. On the palate, these fruit flavors lengthen into a spicy finish with the help of balanced tannin as a backbone. The medium weight body adds a soft texture that coats your mouth and lingers long after your last sip. Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
tannins are tamed, very smooth, finish lingers pleasantly, nice cab nose, well balanced, worth pursuing
