Region:

Dry Creek Valley, California

Grape Variety:

56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 8% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc

Tasting Note:

At first swirl, the wine displays high-toned perfume aromas of rose petal, cranberry, blueberry and oregano. Several more minutes reveal hints of wild sage, allspice and dark cherry characters. The palate is full and rich with mouthfilling complexity carrying notes of espresso, sweet vanilla, anise and dark fruit tones. The tannins are smooth and supple providing balance and sophistication. Charming and polished from start to finish, this isa wine that will age beautifully for years to come.
