Varietal: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec
Tasting notes: Floral aromas of ripe plum, raspberry, and cassis; with a touch of cedar and vanilla. The mouth is layered with intense flavors of cherry, red currants, and berry jam. Ripe tannins focus on the palate and provide a lengthy finish of spice and red fruit. This is a classic Napa Cab, with old school Napa charm, that focuses on balance over power.
