82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 3% Other Red Varietals.
Concentrated dark cherry and cassis, with bright fruit character, a well-structured palate, and fine mountain tannins. Big yet approachable, the mouthfeel is full and round, with good body and balance. Sweet oak notes complement the vibrant fruit, and the long finish is graced by flavors of cocoa, cassis, and rich mountain character.
"Deep crimson hue. Pretty nose with maple, vanilla and black cherry fruit. Soft mouth-feel with a silky tannin impressions and elegant integration of berry fruit and acidity. Tart, tangy close with blackberry, leather and coffee impressions." 91 Points
