Region: Napa Valley, California
Grape: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc
Tasting Note: This is a wine that shows the artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties, which contributed layer-upon-layer of flavor complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon gave the wine its generous core of briary blackberry and cassis expression, while we increased the amount of Merlot this year to tame the tannins and add plush mid-palate texture. Malbec contributed deep plum notes, while Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot completed the blend with nuances of rose, forest loam and graphite.
