(2010 Vintage) Deep, dense and concentrated, the flavors echo intense aromas of blueberry, bramble and cassis intermingled with cocoa, cinnamon and sweet, toasty oak. Bold, yet supple on the palate, the dark, richly-fruity flavors are balanced by a bright acidity and long finish.
(2010 Vintage) Dense tannins are soft and silky, a rich setting for juicy fruit flavors of dark plum mingling with notes of dark chocolate and vanilla oak— A Napa Valley Classic.
