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

Expressive fragrances of dark plums supported by hints of cassas and vanilla give the wine a complex and enticing aroma. A taste reveals a supple mouth feel framed by flavors reminiscent of blueberries and espresso. Plush tannins on the mid palate give way to a dry finish.

    Notes of raspberries and pomegranate with a slight musty oaky nose. Not too impressed with the legs, lots of tannins, very dry after finish on front of palate. I've had better at $15 a bottle. Wouldn't buy again.
