Winemaker Notes
Aromas of dark sweet cherry, black currant, dark plum, and finely integrated baking spice and toast. The very sweet, exuberant fruit is complemented by notes of rose petals, almond toffee, vanilla and cedarwood. Sweet black fruit on the entry opens to a rich, velvety mid-palate. The weight and concentration in this wine are balanced by flavors of dark ripe cherry, berry and plum, along with cocoa and spice. The oak is well integrated and seamlessly supports the weight of the fruit. This refined and structured wine is framed by nice acidity, a long finish and very fine tannins. Decant this wine in its youth, it will reach a nice level of complexity 8-10 years from vintage, and with proper cellaring it will continue to develop over the next 10+ years.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot
