Description

The nose of this opulent blend is incredibly flashy with abundant aromas of red currant, raspberry, blackberry cobbler, spice and a hint of underbrush. The French oak is subtle, yet present. This powerful wine boasts copious amounts of juicy, ripe red fruit characteristics and is extraordinarily soft and supple. In addition, hints of lingering milk chocolate and cherry truffle notes dance on the back palate.

92 Points James Suckling - Dark plums, blackberries, licorice, chocolate, ripe stems, orange rind, hot stones, dust and coffee beans. Full-bodied with grippy tannins, some nice sweet-and-sour character, a fresh line of acidity and a medium chewy finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drink in 2020.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast -  A blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Zinfandel, 15% Merlot and 13% Petite Sirah, this delivers soft, generous flavors of graham cracker, plum and blackberry. A framework of dusty tannins is counterbalanced by approachable lushness on the palate.
