(1997 Vintage) Its deep! Its dark! Its unmistakably hillside! Chocolate-covered cherries and the enticing nuance of violets create the foundation for the opulent and jammy flavors that follow. Deepened further with each taste by a layer of toasty oak, this wine is also exceptionally bright with an elegant silky finish. Serve with salmon, beef or your favorite chocolate dessert! The blend is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot.
Very well balanced. Nose is a bit light, but its a nice big Napa cab that will age very nicely, or can be enjoyed immediately. Finish lingers long enough to really enjoy it, but isn't as long now as it will hopefully be in a few years
Red fruit, mint and toasty notes Great finish
