(2011 Vintage) Gold Medal Winner: 2014 Los Angeles International Wine CompetitionThis Cabernet Sauvignon presents with bright hues of purples and red. Vibrant, youthful aromas of blackberry, plum and raspberry mingle with notes of chocolate laced with hints of vanillin and toasted oak. Fruit forward flavors burst with blackberry and black plum and are balanced by graceful, structured notes of oak combined with cocoa and a dusty sense of Napa Valley terroir. This is an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that is finely textured with a solid frame.
Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
